Rahul calls BJP manifesto ‘voice of an isolated man’

New Delhi: Congress president Rahul Gandhi today slammed the BJP’s ‘Sankalp Patra’ for upcoming Lok Sabha poll, saying that it is ‘short-sighted and arrogant’.

He added that the Congress had created its manifesto after discussions and has included the voice of over a million people in its manifesto.

“The Congress manifesto was created through discussion. The voice of over a million Indian people it is wise and powerful. The BJP Manifesto was created in a closed room. The voice of an isolated man, it is short-sighted and arrogant,” tweeted the Congress president.

Reacting to Rahul’s jibe, BJP leader Smriti Irani said that Rahul is obsessed with BJP and only if he has shown the same obsession for the welfare of nation then we should have known his vision for the country.

Smriti added that despite having a vision, there’s a question mark on Rahul’s efficiency as nation knows the condition of Amethi, ANI reported.

The BJP leader remarked that on one hand there’s an efficient government which has taken resolution to build a New India, on the other there’s a man who only makes announcements and refrains from taking any pledge.

It is to be noted that Smriti Irani is contesting against Rahul from Amethi in upcoming Lok Sabha poll. The BJP released its Sankalp Patra or manifesto on Monday promising to adopt a muscular approach to deal with terrorism, huge investments in rural areas, measures to strengthen infrastructure, and several measures for welfare of farmers and poor.
