INDIA'S major political parties haven begun releasing their all important election manifestos.


Akin to party policy platforms in a Western-style democracy, these documents lay out the broad priciples and ideological underpinnings of each political movement. They are also notoriously short on details. Readers will be hard pressed to find detailed costings or delivery timetables.


Nonetheless, the manifestos provide a valuable insight into each political party's vision for the future of India. 


Election Watch will upload the party manifestos as they become available. Have we missed one? Email us
