Glorifying the BJP’s manifesto for 2019 Lok Sabha Elections, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said that the centre-ruling party was the only one to come up with a “Sankalp Patra”, while others came up with “Ghoshna Patra”.
While speaking at the BJP’s manifesto release programme, the senior party leader said that “it is not just announcements that the document has made, but pledges that the party has made to itself to deliver to the people,” adding that the nation would believe that the BJP as its government had done a lot more than it has promised before 2014 Elections.
Referring to PM Modi’s leadership, Ms. Swaraj said that he was honored with five major prestigious awards in the last 5-years tenure by several nations, including Saudi Arabia.
She continued that the country’s prestige had also touched new heights under the leadership of Narendra Modi and that it was visible when Pak threatened to boycott the OIC (Organisation of Islamic Cooperation) meeting if India was invited and 56 out of 57 participating countries said let Pakistan not to come.
Ms. Swaraj claims that the prestige of India is presently ‘very high’ in the world and its participation in the OIC meet was an important achievement, adding that it was a highlight of PM Modi’s diplomatic success.
