Soon after the release of the manifesto, the copies were handed over to representatives of the four broad groups — Gareeb, Yuva, Annadata and Nari Shakti (GYAN), the beneficiaries of Government schemes.

BJP’s promises

“The party’s manifesto empowers the four strong pillars of developed India — youth, women, poor and farmers. Our focus is to ensure dignity of life, quality of life and jobs through investment. In the last 10 years, around 25 crore of the country have moved out of multidimensional poverty which is a testament to BJP’s commitment to a result-oriented approach to work,” he added.

Stating that the free ration scheme would continue to be operational for the next five years, PM Modi said that senior citizens over the age of 70 years would be covered under the Ayushman Bharat Scheme irrespective of their economic background.
