BJP has narrow agenda: CongressApril 3rd, 2009 - 7:35 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, April 3 (IANS) Criticising the Bharatiya Janata Party’s manifesto released Friday, the Congress party said BJP has a “narrow agenda”.
The Congress party attacked the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) manifesto released earlier in the day and said that the party has imitated Congress’ manifesto.
“They have copied our manifesto,” central minister and Congress spokesperson Kapil Sibal told reporters.
He also took note of the inclusion of the BJP’s long-standing demands - building a grand Ram temple in Ayodhya, removal of the constitution’s article 370 relating to Jammu and Kashmir, and imposing a uniform civil code.
“What is the BJP’s agenda except for the Ram Mandir, Article 370 and Uniform Civil Code,” he asked.
“They have a narrow agenda, narrow vision and narrow mindset,” Sibal said.
Sibal said the BJP was doing “politics of incomplete India” and would not come to power as long as they continue to do so.
The BJP manifesto has no meaning since it is not the manifesto of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) it leads, and would not be acceptable to most of its allies, he added.
