Congress points out major goof-up in BJP manifesto

BJP manifesto

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday released its manifesto for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. As expected, it made a plethora of promises ranging from doubling farmers’ income by 2022 to lowering tax rates.

However, it made a major goof-up in its manifesto.

“We have constituted the Women’s Security Division in the Home Ministry, and have made strict provisions for transferring the laws in order to commit crimes against women, in particular in a time-bound investigation and trail for rape,” reads the 11th point under Women Empowerment section of the manifesto titled ‘Sankalpit Bharat, Sashakt Bharat’. Instead of writing “checking/curbing crimes against women,” the manifesto said “commit crimes against women.”

The Congress was quick to proof-read the document and pointed out the mistake.

“At least one point in BJP’s manifesto reflects their true intentions. #BJPJumlaManifesto,” it said in its tweet.

The same paragraph has another mistake where the word ‘trial’ has been typed as ‘trail.’

In another tweet, Congress attacked the BJP saying that the saffron party’s manifesto reminded them of their own 2014 manifesto.

“This copy-paste Manifesto is giving us serious déjà vu from 2014. #BJPJumlaManifesto,” it tweeted.
