- In all three manifestos (2002, 2007 & 2012) released by Narendra Modi, as Gujarat chief minister, he often says, “Mai jo bolta hun, woh kar ke dikhata hun [What I say, I do].”
- But, only a fraction of the manifesto promises by the BJP have actually materialized in his 13 year rule of Gujarat.
- The demand for jobs in Gujarat is very high. Two months ago, the Gujarat State Road Transport Corporation held interviews to recruit 600 conductors. As many as 12 lakh people applied. Similarly, there were 14 lakh applicants for the post of 1,100 talatis (village accountants).
- In its 2002 and 2007 manifestos, the BJP had promised farmers power supply for 14 hours. But the supply was for eight to ten hours, at the best.
- In 2012, the BJP announced a scheme to build 50 lakh pucca homes for the poor in five years. Less than two lakh of them have been built.
- In 2002, the BJP spoke about educating girl children and achieving 100% literacy by 2008. More than 35% of women and 16% of men, still remain illiterate.
- The gap between the poor and the rich has increased, and there is not much investment in rural infrastructure. The lives of poor have not improved.
- BJP’s credibility has taken a beating because its achievements have not matched its tall claims. The goal of any political party is to win elections. The problem with the BJP is that it exaggerates what has been done.

Modi never walks the talk
If the Congress party wins, it will be a vote against dictatorship ... Hardik Patel
Of late the Prime Minister Modi developed habit of coming out with new ideas and schemes very often, even when his earlier schemes were badly implemented or ended up in colossal failures, and goes ahead with them without discussion, inviting suggestions or adequate preparation which is an ingredient for its failure. But his spectacular launching publicity will hypnotize people (including well educated class) and they will be waiting for positive result will come some how, sooner or later. But miracles won't happen in real life.
