The Indian National Congress (INC) today (Tuesday, April 2) released its manifesto for the 2019 Lok Sabha Elections. The party majorly focused on minimum income support price for farmers, employment for the youths, single slab Good and Services Tax (GST) and the manifesto also focused on the women security and the healthcare.
Addressing the media earlier today Congress President criticized the Modi-led-BJP government and claimed that the saffron party failed in their promises what they made and also deceived the innocent people.
Responding to the Rahul Gandhi’s allegations over the Bharatiya Janata Party, UP CM Yogi Adityanath said, “Iss chunaav mein Congress naetretavya ka ye jhuut dubara benaqab hoga aur janata zordaar jawab Congress aur uske sehyogi dalon ko degi. Unhone apne 55 varsho ki naakaami ko 55 page ke apne ghoshna patra ke maadhyam se vyakt kiya hai.”
Slamming the Congress manifesto, BJP senior leader and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, said:
Congress manifesto is dangerous and unimplementable, an agenda for balkanisation of India.
Congress promises will protect Maoists and jihadists; allow terrorists and their friends to prosecute the forces.
Congress leadership in the clutches of jihadis and Maoists, treason will not be crime any more, they say.
Not one tear shed for Kashimiri Pandits, biggest failure of secularism in Independent India, the ethnic cleansing of an entire community.
“Promises are made out of ignorance… I seem to have read the Congress manifesto more than the Congress president,” Jaitley said. There are statements in the manifesto which will divide the country and will not unite it, Finance Minister added.
Addressing a press conference, Arun Jaitley said, “Some of the ideas [in the Congress manifesto] are positively dangerous. Even though there was a drafting committee, it appears some points have been drafted by Congress president’s friends in the ‘Tukde Tukde gang’ where the manifesto deals with Jammu and Kashmir and the national security.”
Arun Jaitley further said that the Congress manifesto says the party will review AFSPA. “These provisions have been made to help Maoists and jihadis so that stone pelters come on to the streets and terrorists kill and flee. They say they will continue to talk, have continuous dialogue with separatists. Rule of insurgents and terrorists is being propagated by the Congress.”
“In their recent manifesto, the Congress has proposed to tone down AFSPA in J&K. Do they want to demoralize the forces and their personnel?” said Amit Shah said in Thoothukudi, addressing a political rally.
