BJP Election Manifesto 2024: Promises BJP Poll Manifesto

Highlights of the BJP Election Manifesto 2024: On April 14, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), along with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP President JP Nadda, Home Minister Amit Shah, and Defense Minister Rajnath Singh, unveiled their BJP Election Manifesto 2024, dubbed the “Sankalp Patra.” “Sankalp Patra”: One nation, one election, and the introduction of a common electoral roll system is the BJP’s election manifesto. A law prohibiting exam paper leaks was another pledge made by the BJP.

The Defence Minister Rajnath Singh-led manifesto committee has met twice. For its manifesto, the BJP has received over 1.5 million recommendations; 400,000 of them came from the NaMo app, and 1.1 million came through video submissions.

According to ANI, the 27-member Election Manifesto Committee was established by the BJP. Rajnath Singh, the minister of defense, was chosen to lead this committee. Concurrently, Union Minister Piyush Goyal was designated as the co-coordinator and Union Minister Nirmala Sitharaman as the coordinator. Twenty-four other people were members of this committee.

Here Are the Key Promises in the BJP Election Manifesto 2024

The distribution of free rations will be extended for the next five years under the PM Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana.

The ‘Sankalp Patra’ promises to implement the Uniform Civil Code and advocate for a One Nation One Election.

Senior citizens (aged 70 and above) and individuals from the transgender community will be included in the coverage of the Ayushman Bharat Yojana.

Persons with disabilities will receive priority in the PM Housing Scheme, with dedicated efforts to ensure housing is tailored to their specific needs.

The ‘Modi ki Guarantee’ manifesto further commits to elevating 3 crore women to the status of Lakhpati Didis, a significant increase from the nearly 1 crore women who have achieved this milestone.

The BJP’s manifesto also commits to constructing 3 crore houses and striving to ensure affordable pipeline gas access for all households. Additionally, it pledges free electricity to impoverished households under the PM Surya Ghar Muft Bijli Yojana.

Existing healthcare services aimed at preventing and reducing breast cancer, cervical cancer, anemia, and osteoporosis will be expanded, with a particular emphasis on eliminating cervical cancer.

Stringent laws will be implemented to combat misconduct in recruitment examinations across the country.

‘Uniform civil code’

However, detractors claim that a new term for the BJP could jeopardize India’s standing as a secular democracy, pointing to continuous assaults on minorities by Hindu nationalist organizations, especially Muslims, and a reduction in the space available for free speech and the media.

Reiterating its position on the so-called uniform civil code (UCC), which would harmonize laws for private affairs like marriage, divorce, and inheritance across faiths and religious communities, the party’s manifesto entered a contentious debate.

Using Modi’s preferred name for the nation, the party’s manifesto stated that it “believes that there cannot be gender equality till such time Bharat adopts a uniform civil code, which protects the rights of all women.”
