I hope you have had a chance to glance through our Party's manifesto that I sent you earlier.
While you make your important voting decision, I wanted to bring to your attention five big unanswered questions in BJP's election manifesto 2009.
Question 1: Will the BJP abolish the National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (NREGA) scheme that is providing employment to crores of poor households across the country, while generating tangible public assets?
Question 2: Why is the BJP manifesto silent on the role of the public sector? Is it because it wants to continue its policy of indiscriminate and non-transparent privatization by stealth?
Question 3: Why is the BJP's manifesto bereft on any ideas on industrial development? Is the BJP intellectually bankrupt on ideas for the industrial development of India?
Question 4: Does the BJP have any tangible plan on agricultural loan waiver beyond the vague statement .Waive Agricultural Loans. that adorn its manifesto? Or is it promising to do something that the Congress-led UPA government has already done?
Question 5: How exactly does the BJP propose to improve upon the POTA.? What more will it do that goes beyond the strong anti-terror law . the amended UAPA . that the Congress-led UPA government has already enacted?
We believe that these questions must be answered by the BJP in order that the electorate has a clearer choice. The attached link is a short note on these unanswered questions.
Please feel free to share this document with others, in order to generate informed discussion and decision-making.
