Manifesto Fiasco: Congress, AAP call out BJP’s erroneous manifesto on Crimes against Women

Recently released Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) manifesto became a laughing stock for many including the opposition party Congress as the manifesto read: “We have constituted the Women’s Security Division in the Home  Ministry, and have made strict provisions for transferring the laws in order to commit crimes against women.”

This goof up had many sections rolling on the floor with laughter as Congress pointed out the “true intentions” of the party on the issue of the safety for women.

In its manifesto, BJP mentions safety for women as one of its ‘key concerns’. But the sentence phrasing indicates the opposite.

The Congress was not one to let this opportunity slip away and had a field day on social media. It shared the screen grab of the manifesto and a tweet by the official handle read, “At least one point in BJP’s manifesto reflects their true intentions.”

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) called out the error, “”BJP’s ‘Sankalp’ to ENCOURAGE Crime Against Women”. It said, “.. @BJP4India However hard you might try, your actual intentions will come to light.”

Congress’s social media convenor Hasiba used the hashtag #WomenBewareofBJP as she wrote: “Dear BJP, Freudian slip?”

The BJP has released its manifesto just three days before the national elections. More than 24 hours later, BJP is yet to comment on the fiasco.
