India's BJP releases manifesto ahead of upcoming elections

"Nationalism is our inspiration", Prime Minister Narendra Modi said at the release of the BJP's election manifesto at the party headquarters in New Delhi.

He also noted that the 2019 election is an election of expectations.

"Unveiling the 45-page party manifesto Amit Shah said, We are going with 75 promises to people, to celebrate 75 years of independence".

On the economic front, the party said it aspired to make India the third-largest economy of the world by 2030, adding, "This implies that we commit to make India a Dollars 5 trillion economy by 2025 and USD 10 trillion economy by 2032".

Political leaders in Muslim-majority Kashmir, where India is fighting an armed rebellion against its rule, have warned that repealing the law would lead to widespread unrest.

The BJP also promised capital investment of $1.44 trillion in infrastructure by 2024, to help create jobs for millions entering the workforce each year.

Congress spokesperson and Rajya Sabha MP Rajeev Gowda said he was hurt by some omissions in the manifesto like no concern for agricultural labour by the party that kept talking about "kisan" (farmer).

"Women's welfare and development will be accorded a high priority at all levels within the government, and the BJP is committed to 33 percent reservation in parliament and state assemblies through a constitutional amendment", the manifesto said.

The party promised that it would continue with the simplification of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) process by engaging in dialogue with all the stakeholders.

He said the BJP should start packing as people would reject its false promises and throw the party out of power, and that the party should have issued a "maafinama" (apology letter) instead of a "jhansa patra".

Earlier, the Congress party launched a scathing attack on the BJP manifesto, saying the ruling party has "simply copy pasted" its 2014 poll document and changed all previous deadlines.

The main opposition Congress party released its manifesto last week, blasting the Hindu nationalist BJP for working "to divide the nation".

The prime minister said the BJP's manifesto was a "multi-layered and multi-dimensional" document that addressed the expectations and aspirations of all sections of the society.
