Senior Congress leader Ahmed Patel said the BJP should have come out with a ‘maafinama’ (letter of apology) instead of a manifesto.
In a series of tweets, Patel said the difference between the BJP’s manifesto and that of the Congress can be seen from the cover page itself.
Ours has a crowd of people, and BJP manifesto has a face of just one man. Instead of a manifesto, BJP should have come out with a 'maafinama'
“For its 2019 manifesto, BJP has simply copy pasted its 2014 manifesto & changed all previous deadlines from 2019 to 2022,2032,2047,2097. Luckily they didn’t shift any deadlines to the next century,” he wrote on the microblogging site.
After we presented our manifesto, we held a detailed Q&A session
And immediately after BJP presented its manifesto, all of their leaders went home
without even taking a single question
No answers on their 5 years?
It is this arrogance which will bring them down on May 23rd
Mr. Patel also hit out at the BJP leaders for not taking any questions after releasing the manifesto and compared that with Congress president Rahul Gandhi’s interaction with journalists after releasing the poll document.
