As the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) gears up for a potential third term in office, its manifesto for 2024 reflects a reaffirmation of its governance principles rather than a contentious political statement. With landmark achievements like the abrogation of Article 370 and the construction of the Ayodhya Ram Temple, the manifesto underscores the party’s commitment to stability, continuity, and inclusive development.

Continuity in Governance Agenda

The manifesto highlights a shift in mindset from desperation to confidence after a decade in power. It emphasizes the party’s dedication to expanding the welfare net, improving public infrastructure, and creating opportunities for various segments of society, including youth, women, the middle class, and the elderly.

Focus Areas

While reiterating its commitment to the Uniform Civil Code for gender equality, the manifesto also pledges to implement “One Nation, One Election.” It promises to enhance flagship infrastructure and welfare programs, including initiatives for roads, housing, gas connections, and health insurance, with a special emphasis on providing free electricity to impoverished households.

Notable Changes

The manifesto deviates from previous promises, such as the silence on the National Register of Citizens (NRC) and the introduction of the Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA) in Northeastern states. Additionally, there’s a shift in approach towards farmers’ income, focusing more on welfare programs rather than specific income targets.

New Initiatives

In a bid to bolster agricultural infrastructure, the manifesto introduces several new schemes, including the establishment of vegetable production clusters, promoting India as a “Nutri-Hub,” and launching the National Mission on Natural Farming. It also emphasizes the development of religious and tourist sites inspired by successful models like the Kashi Vishwanath corridor.

Inclusivity and Outreach

The manifesto reiterates the party’s commitment to minority empowerment, including Muslim women through the abolition of Triple Talaq. It also pledges to preserve linguistic minorities’ languages through technological interventions like the Bhashini system.

Looking Ahead

While addressing past achievements like the revocation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir, the manifesto remains silent on specific plans for the region. However, it promises continued expansion of welfare schemes and infrastructure projects, aiming to reach every sector and community across the nation.


The BJP’s 2024 manifesto represents a blend of continuity and adaptation, focusing on governance, inclusivity, and development while addressing emerging challenges and aspirations of the Indian populace.
