With less than 24 hours left before the campaigning comes to an end for the first phase of polling on 15 Assembly seats in the state but not a single political party has come up with its election manifesto. Starting from Congress and BJP, even regional political parties National Conference and Peoples Democratic Party have issued their party manifesto listing their agenda before the electorate.
Same is the case with the congress party. Star campaigner of the party and chairman of the election campaign committee Azad while addressing a press conference in Jammu two days ago listed high points of the party agenda before the electorate but could not spell out the exact date of release of party manifesto.
The status of regional parties is even worse. Both the mainstream parties in the state often blame each other of raking their favoirte slogans of Autonomy and self rule but this time they have been shying away from making mention of these issues.
Neither the PDP nor the NC has announced any programme of release date of party manifesto.
