BJP to release manifesto for Lok Sabha polls today

"The world has drastically changed because of social media and things like that, the policies sometimes are lagging behind and procedures, which have to be followed, make us slow", said the official at the ECI, which has 300 people in its headquarters and others in states.

The manisfesto also includes promises to construct Ram Mandir and double the income of farmers for which the party has made a separate manifesto called the 'Kisan manifesto'.

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

The BJP had tried to mislead the people by making big promises in 2014 and it was doing the same this time round, but people had come to see the true face of the party, Mayawati said, while terming saffron party's manifesto an "illusion". "Hence, we have set out 75 goals to be achieved by 2022", he said.

Ahead of a general election that starts next week, the Election Commission of India (ECI) says it is swamped with hundreds of thousands of such questions and complaints of alleged violation of election rules, known as the model code of conduct. "We are committed to annulling Article 35A of the Constitution of India as the provision is discriminatory against the non-permanent residents and women of Jammu and Kashmir".

Senior Congress leader Ahmed Patel said while the Congress manifesto had a picture of people on its cover page, the BJP document had only Prime Minister Narendra Modi's picture which reflected the difference in priorities of the two parties.

He also referred to various schemes and decisions of the government, including the Swachh Bharat Mission, the Ujjwala Yojana, the Saubhagya Yojana, demonetisation, GST, surgical strikes and airstrikes.

He said the party promised to the people of India a transparent, strong and decisive government and urged the voters to bring it back to power.

He added that Modi had provided a decisive government in the last five years and had dared to order surgical strikes and airstrikes on the foundation of terror. The polling in Pilibhit will take place in the third phase of Lok Sabha elections on April 23.

With this, the party has so far announced 407 candidates.

The aim is to integrate the state more closely with the rest of the country.
