BJP reiterates commitment to manifesto

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has today reiterated its commitment towards the manifesto it had released on 7 April. The graphic above highlights the programmes it emphasises.

Controlling price rise, generating employment, encouraging entrepreneurship, ending “policy paralysis” that the outgoing United Progressive Alliance (UPA) Government was constantly accused of, delivering the goods to the people, making a government that is trusted by the people and fighting corruption largely by incorporating technology are the main points of the document.

Importantly, the stands distinguished from other anti-corruption platforms that wish to fight corruption through draconian governmental measures. While Lokpal finally became a law after four decades of procastrination by successive governments, a more stringent ombudsman was demanded by the civil society group India against Corruption and the party that came out of it: the Aam Aadmi Party. The BJP, in contrast, seems to be focussing on pre-empting corruption by using such automated processes that would make corruption difficult, if not impossible.

The other measures that the BJP’s incoming government has promised are no quick fix formulas. Developing a credible government, for example, is a -consuming process. But Prime Minister-designate Narendra Modi’s track record in Gujarat suggests quick clearances of projects will now be the norm.

With a single centre of power in the new government and a huge mandate that gives the ruling party alone absolute majority in Lok Sabha, never mind the additional seats it enjoys from partners of the National Democratic Alliance, legislation will be easier, though less than adequate seats in the Rajya Sabha might prove a stumbling block. Aspects of progress that do not need legislation should witness smoother sailing.
