New Delhi: In a scathing criticism of the BJP manifesto, the Congress on Monday said the ruling party has “simply copy pasted” its 2014 poll document and changed all previous deadlines. Senior Congress leader Ahmed Patel said the BJP should have come out with a ‘maafinama’ (letter of apology) instead of a manifesto. In a series of tweets, Patel said the difference between the BJP’s manifesto and that of the Congress can be seen from the cover page itself. “Our’s has a crowd of people, and BJP manifesto has face of just one man. Instead of a manifesto BJP should have come out with a ‘maafinama’,” the Congress Rajya Sabha MP said. “For its 2019 manifesto, BJP has simply copy pasted its 2014 manifesto & changed all previous deadlines from 2019 to 2022,2032,2047,2097. Luckily they didn’t shift any deadlines to the next century,” he wrote on the microblogging site. —PTI
