Imran Khan slams Modi and Netanyahu as 'Morally Bankrupt'

India's ruling party releases manifesto days before election

Hours after the BJP released its manifesto for the Lok Sabha elections 2019, Congress and the Aam Aadmi Party were quick to spot an error in its promises for women.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has categorically said that air strikes against terrorist's infrastructure will be India's new policy, adding that "New India" will kill terrorists by barging into their dens.

The BJP has made a new pledge to scrap a law that gives special privileges - such as preventing outsiders from buying property - to residents of Indian-occupied Kashmir.

Repeal would bring widespread unrest, Kashmiri political leaders warned.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) said getting rid of the protections around Kashmir will help it integrate with the rest of the country.

Continuing his attack on the Congress' election manifesto, PM Modi said their manifesto stood for Pakistan more than for India on the issue of Jammu and Kashmir and terrorism.

Modi shared the stage with Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray in Latur for the first time after the tie-up of their parties for the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.

The Congress Monday took a swipe at the BJP over the error saying at least one point in the document reflects the ruling party's "true intentions".

The BJP promised a capital investment of 100 trillion Indian rupees ($1.44 trillion) on infrastructure by 2024, to help create jobs for the millions of youth entering the workforce every year.

Modi also launched stinging attacks on the country's main opposition Congress Party, claiming they are responsible for the creation of Pakistan.

The party said it committed to building a temple for Hindu god Ram in Ayodhya in place of medieval era Babri mosque, which was demolished by Hindu mobs in 1992.

Pollsters say Modi and the BJP's re-election bid got a boost from a wave of patriotism after the suicide bomb attack and the Indian government's response.

While, the BJP's "sankalp patra' is for voters, he said".

The national elections will see close to 900 million voters cast their ballots in almost a million polling booths - the world's biggest ever democratic exercise.

None of the nine candidates in the fray have earlier been elected either to the Lok Sabha or the Rajya Sabha.
