Jammu: Terming Congress's manifesto for the Assembly polls as "old wine in new bottle", BJP on Monday hit out at the party for failing on all fronts and repeating old promises.

"Congress?s manifesto is reflection of the failure of the party on all fronts. It is old wine in a new bottle", Bali Bhagat, BJP state General Secretary and party candidate from Raipur-Domana constituency said during a public meeting in Domana belt here.

"Since 2002 Congress has been repeating same promises in its manifesto. It appears that the only aim of Congress is to enjoy the power by bartering the wishes and aspirations of the people of Jammu and Kashmir," he said.

Promising equitable development of the three regions of Jammu and Kashmir, Congress had yesterday released its manifesto which proposed two empowered regional councils, decentralisation, more cross-LoC Confidence Building Measures (CBMs) and review of cases of detainees not involved in grave offences.

Hitting out at the party for promising Regional Council for Jammu Region, Bhagat said, "What have you done for the people of Jammu region during the last 12 years except minting money?"

He added that instead of highlighting their achievements Congress leaders are brazenly making promises with the people.

"Gone are the days when Congress used to be fool the people by making false promises. Now people are demanding report card of their 12 year period in power," Bhagat said.

Cautioning people against the "dangerous game-plan of Congress party", the BJP leader said be fooling people by making false promise is policy matter of Congress party.

Jammu and Kashmir goes to polls in the first phase of the five-stage Assembly elections tomorrow.
