BJP’s manifesto, nothing new… Opposition targeted the President’s address like this
He said that there was not a single sentence in the address about controlling inflation, creating employment, strengthening federalism, promoting communal harmony, passing the Women’s Reservation Bill. Communist Party of India’s Rajya Sabha member Vinay Viswam alleged that the empowerment of women, youth, dalits and tribals is only on paper.
He tweeted that the President’s address was probably the last time in the historic Central Hall. Everything related to the freedom struggle and the Constitution is being discarded. The speech appears to be the first chapter of the ruling party’s manifesto for 2024 (for the general elections). Words are lovely, truth is not. The CPI MP said, there is no point of pride on secularism. Hindutva in the RSS style was the color of pride.
