Cong-NCP "cuts and paste" our manifesto in Maha: BJP

india Updated: Oct 06, 2009 23:30 IST

BJP on Tuesday accused the Congress-NCP alliance in Maharashtra of using "cut and paste technology" to copy most of its promises in their manifesto and quoted an internal survey to claim that 61 per cent voters wanted a change of government in the state.

"Our manifesto has been straight away copied with little variation by the Congress-NCP alliance. 13 out of 21 promises made by us have been copied with cut and paste technology. Our manifesto was released one week before theirs," BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar said.

He stated that despite this, the Congress-NCP alliance would lose. "Their credibility of keeping promises is seriously jeopardised while our credibility of keeping promises is larger," he said.

Quoting two internal surveys conducted by BJP, Javadekar claimed that before the polls were announced 53 per cent of the electorate wanted a change in government. This anti-incumbency had now gone up to 61 per cent, he said.

"More than 50 per cent of the voters hold the government responsible for price rise," Javadekar said.

BJP will go to the people with its programmes, the promise to check price rise and promote development as the agenda.
