The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will release its manifesto for the Rajasthan Assembly elections on Wednesday.

According to reports, the manifesto will be released by party's national president Rajnath Singh and Rajasthan unit chief Vasundhara Raje.

After releasing the manifesto, Rajnath Singh will attend rallies in Sikar, Jaipur and Bayana in Bharatpur.

Rajasthan, which is currently governed by Congress Government, votes for a new assembly on December 1. The counting of votes will take place on December 8.

On Tuesday, addressing a rally in Rajasthan's Alwar District, BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi accused the Congress Government of harassing tribals by not providing them with clean drinking water.

?Rajasthan's Congress Government is number one when it comes to troubling tribals. They are also number one when it comes to supplying polluted drinking water,? Modi said.

?If there is any state topping list in atrocities of tribal communities, it is this Congress-run Rajasthan Government. God save the country from Ashok Gehlot's ways of governance,? he added.

However, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi accused the BJP of dividing the people of this country on the basis on region, religion and caste to win the upcoming elections.

Congress says that we have to get everyone together for India to progress. Opposition says we have to divide India. Divide Hindus and Muslims, divide rich and poor, this is their thought process, he said while addressing a rally in Bikaner.

He further ridiculed the BJP's tall claims of development and said that leaders of the saffron outfit are experts in marketing.

"The BJP claims that they made a lot of roads during NDA's rule. But when I checked the statistics, I found that UPA built three times more roads than NDA. We have done more infrastructure work than the BJP. But they are very good with their talks. They give good speeches. BJP leaders are experts in marketing," he said.
