BJP manifesto is 'voice of an isolated man': Rahul Gandhi
Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday said the BJP's manifesto for the Lok Sabha elections was the voice of 'an isolated man', besides being 'short sighted' and 'arrogant'.
The ruling Bharatiya Janata Party released its manifesto for the general elections, which will begin on April 11.
The manifesto promises to implement the National Register of Citizens in different parts of the country to push out infiltrators and zero tolerance to terror while iterating its pet causes — construction of the Ram temple in Ayodhya and scrapping of Articles 370 and 35A, dealing with Jammu and Kashmir's special status.
'The Congress manifesto was created through discussion. The voice of over a million Indian people it is wise and powerful,' Gandhi tweeted.
'The BJP Manifesto was created in a closed room. The voice of an isolated man, it is short sighted and arrogant,' he added.
The Congress had dubbed the BJP's election manifesto a 'Jhansa Patra' (deception document) and a 'bubble of lies' on Monday and said it would have been better had the saffron party issued a 'maafinama' instead.
