India’s Modi makes election vow to remove Kashmir’s special rights

MoviesModi Biopic April 8 Plea To Decide Fate Of The Movie By Bisma Fida

According to the manifesto, the party will scrap Article 35A, a decades-old law providing special rights to the residents of Jammu and Kashmir state."We believe that Article 35A is an obstacle in the development of the state", the party's manifesto said of the law that prevents non-residents from buying property in the state.

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'.

The manifesto further highlighted the "apprehensions of the people from the Northeast" and said that the bill will protect the linguistic identity of the Northeast states. "Hence, we have set out 75 goals to be achieved by 2022".

The BJP manifesto opens with an entreaty from Modi for voters' "valued blessings".

"Let us work towards building a strong and inclusive India, whose citizens are assured of dignity, prosperity, security and opportunity", Modi wrote in the preface of the manifesto.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is widely expected to retain power after a general election that starts on Thursday, though with a much smaller mandate, hit by concerns over a shortage of jobs and weak farm prices.

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.

"Our "Sankalp Patra" is a vision document that lists the expectations of 130 crore Indians", Singh said.

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.

Surjewala also hit out at the BJP leaders for not taking any questions after releasing the manifesto.

Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Monday said the concept of "NYAY" is at the core of its campaign for the Lok Sabha polls and builds on the promises the party has made to the people.

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