The manifesto highlights a notable shift in the party’s focus, emphasizing a transition from “desperation” to confidence, promising stability and continuity after a decade in government. Key pillars of the BJP’s agenda include expanding the welfare net, upgrading public infrastructure, and increasing opportunities for various segments of society, including the young, women, the middle-class, and the elderly.

Among the major highlights of the manifesto are:
