AAP calls BJP’s election manifesto a ‘Jumla Patra’

New Delhi, Apr 14 (UNI) Referring to Bharatiya Janta Party’s (BJP) Sankalp Patra as “Jumla Patra”, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader and Delhi Minister Atishi on Sunday accused the BJP of not fulfilling its promises even after staying in power for 10 years.

Addressing the media, Atishi said, “Prime Minister has announced the ‘Jumla Patra’ (rhetoric document) of his party for 2024 elections. It presents a clear picture of the unfulfilled promises of the BJP in the last 10 years.”

“In 2014 as well Modiji’s rhetoric was that we will provide two crore jobs every year. But after 10 years in their jumla patra (manifesto) of 2024, they aren’t ready to give any figures on jobs. In this 75-page document, Modi ji hasn’t mentioned that in the last 10 years how many youths have been given employment,” she added.

“There’s the highest rate of unemployment in the last 45 years in India. Youth employment in India is at an all-time low, 25 percent of our youth are unemployed. Forty-five percent of graduates are unemployed. These are Modi ji’s promises to the youth in the last 10 years and what he has done for them,” Atishi asked.

“The second biggest slogan or rhetoric of Prime Minister Modi was ‘bahut hui mehangai ki maar, abki baar Modi sarkar’. “In his manifesto, he can’t give the figures of how much inflation has reduced. But consumer price index in the last 10 years shows, cumulative dearness has increased by 70 percent in India, which is the second highest after Turkey in the world,” Atishi said.

“India is not at a higher position in terms of employment, economic development, GDP, but Prime Minister Modi made India bag the second position in the world in dearness,” she alleged.

This manifesto doesn’t mention anything about farmers’ income, Atishi said adding, “Modi government backtracked from its promises to farmers in 10 years. The BJP government not only committed atrocities on youth (by not providing them employment), committed atrocities on people (with inflation), committed atrocities on farmers (by not increasing their income), the BJP also cheated the country in the name of health and education.”

“People in the country aren’t going to believe in the BJP manifesto. In the last 10 years, the entire country, youth, and womenfolk saw the rhetoric, and this time people of the country will certainly vote against this rhetoric,” she emphasized.
