BJP to release manifesto on April 7, Modi to be present

April 03, 2014 21:00 IST

The Bharatiya Janata Party will release its manifesto on April 7 in Delhi where a number of its senior party leaders including Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi will be present.

"The party manifesto will be released on April 7," BJP spokesperson Nirmala Sitharaman said.

The manifesto, which will highlight the party's promises to lure the voters for bringing it to power, has been much delayed and will be coming out on a day when polling in six Lok Sabha seats in Assam and Tripura will be held.

Ahead of the manifesto, the party will also release its "charge sheet" against the Congress-led UPA government on Friday, highlighting the acts of omission and commission, failures and various scams of the present regime, Sitharaman said.

She said through this "charge sheet", the saffron party will seek to ask voters to reject Congress and elect a BJP-led NDA government this time.

Asked about the delay in the release of the manifesto, Sitharaman said it is purely due to the lack of availability of various leaders, as the party wanted the top leadership to be present during the manifesto release.

Sources said the draft manifesto had been prepared much earlier and handed over by the committee chairman Murli Manohar Joshi sometime ago, but the top party leadership had to vet it before making it public.

The spokesperson said the top leaders have been campaigning across the country and the party was working out a time when all leaders were available together.
