New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party on Sunday, April 14, released its manifesto- titled 'Sankalp Patra'- for the upcoming Lok Sabha Elections. Prime Minister Narendra Modi unveiled the BJP's election manifesto at BJP's headquarters in New Delhi along with Home Minister Amit Shah, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman and party national president JP Nadda.

As speculated, the BJP's manifesto rests on the planks of welfare and development besides a roadmap for ‘Viksit Bharat’. The focus of BJP's Sankalp Patra remains primarily on 4 groups- youth, women, farmers and the poor which the BJP termed it as GYAN (Garib, Yuva, Annadata- farmers and Nari).

The BJP had appointed a 27-member manifesto committee headed by Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh that met twice to deliberate on its contents after the party had launched multiple exercises, including vans sent across the country and social media campaigns, to seek people's suggestions.

All eyes were on the BJP manifesto as the Narendra Modi-led governments has fulfilled most of its core ideological promises, including the construction of the Ram temple in Ayodhya and the repeal of Article 370. It was expected that the BJP may spring up a surprise, however, observers suggest that the Sankalp Patra will remain focused on 4 castes- youth, women, farmers and the poor.
