6. Sambit Patra says, "Congress has no vision": Slamming Congress's manifesto, BJP's national spokesperson Sambit Patra pointed out some alarming loopholes which the Congress government was unable to fulfill during the party's 5-year-long tenure. Patra said, "I don't consider this manifesto a manifesto. Congress's manifesto has no vision, no mission and is all about the commission." Sambit Patra also slammed the Siddaramaiah government for not being able to perform in the last five years and accused the government of corruption. Patra claimed that the Siddaramaiah government did not fulfill more than 95 per cent of the promises it made in 2013.
"I have a whole document showing how most of your [Congress's] plans that you promised in 2013 didn't work out. You [Congress] promised Rs 50,000 crores will depend on irrigation Shalini Krishna basin and you [Congress] spent only Rs 6,000 crore rupees, " said Patra.
