4 days ahead of LS poll, BJP releases manifesto; PM Modi says it focuses on 'dignity of life, 'quality of life'

New Delhi/IBNS: Four days ahead of the commencement of the Lok Sabha Election, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) released its much-awaited manifesto Sunday morning, underlining Prime Minister Narendra Modi's focus on 'GYAN' - the poor, the youth, farmers and the women.

The manisfesto was released by the Prime Minister, Union Home Minister Amit Shah, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, and BJP chief JP Nadda at the BJP headquarters in Delhi.

PM Modi said the manifesto focuses on four pillars of Viksit Bharat- women power, youth power, farmers and the poor.

He said it focuses on the "dignity of life" and the "quality of life", the quantity of opportunity as well as the quality of opportunity.

"In this Sankalp Patra, a lot of emphasis has been laid on both quantity of opportunities and quality of opportunities. On one hand, we have talked about creating a large number of jobs through building infrastructure. On the other hand, we are focusing on high value services by promoting startups and global centres."

The government will focus on taking piped gas to all homes and providing free electricity through solar power, the Prime Minister said.

The manifesto said the Centre's free ration scheme will be extended by 5 years.

The government will focus on self-reliance in production of pulses, edible oils and vegetables to stabilise price and protect the poor's plates, as per the manifesto by the saffron party.

The Ayushman Bharat scheme and the PM Awas Yojana will be expanded and drinking water supply will be taken to every home.

For the farmers, the BJP manifesto said, the government will continue to provide the annual assistance of Rs. 6,000 and will strengthen the crop insurance scheme through the use of technology.

It promised to continue periodic hikes in Minimum Support Prices for crops, set up new clusters for the production of essentials, and build more storage facilities.

Addressing the media, Nadda gave a rundown of the BJP government's achievements over the past decade in power.

He reiterated that 'Modi ki guarantee' -- the BJP's key poll slogan -- "is a guarantee that all guarantees will be fulfilled".
