AAP slams BJP for false promises in manifesto

New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party on Monday slammed the Bharatiya Janata Party for issuing a fresh set of ‘jumlas’ in its 43-page manifesto for the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.

While AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal raised questions over the fate of the promises made by the saffron party in its 2014 manifesto, party MP Sanjay Singh attacked the BJP for not promising statehood to Delhi.

“BJP unveils a fresh set of ‘jumlas’ without telling the country what is the fate of its 2014 ‘jumlas’. Modi-Shah don’t have the courage to speak on why demonetisation was done? What happened to two crore jobs? Why were farmers pushed towards destruction?” Kejriwal questioned in a tweet.

Singh also attacked the BJP for not promising “martyr” status and pension to the Central Reserve Police Force personnel.

“The manifesto of the BJP is an extension of its lies and ‘jumlas’. They have cheated the paramilitary forces. Everyone was expecting that the CRPF personnel will get a pension and also a status of martyr. But the BJP, who seek votes in the name of army personnel, has not promised any such thing in its manifesto,” he added.

He also said that just like the Congress, the BJP too did not mention anything in its manifesto on Delhi’s statehood.
