BJP's manifesto and the foreign policy issues it failed to focus on
BJP released its manifesto on 7th April, 2014 covering most of the above issues. However, the manifesto does not talk about defence pact with Israel, Tibet issue, deportation of Bangladeshi illegal migrants, grant of minority status to Hindus in Punjab and J&K as well as abolition of caste based reservations. It also has made no mention of the compulsory singing of the national song "Vande Mataram".

Now, it is very essential for the new Government which would be elected to have a defence pact with Israel to counter Sino-Pak axis, particularly in view of the fact that with the withdrawal of NATO troops from Afghanistan, the Afghan Taliban who were engaged in fierce fight with these troops would get relieved and indulge in a big way in cross border terrorism in J&K.

Regarding Tibet issue, Tibet was never a part of China. It had an independent Government under the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan language was written like Indian languages and it was not a pictorial language like the Chinese. Moreover, all the religious books of Tibetans were in Sanskrit.

China had forcefully occupied it in 1950 and Nehru had committed a blunder in agreeing to Chinese occupation of Tibet. It must be set free. So, India should immediately recognise the Tibetan Government in Exile and help Tibetans militarily to fight China. It is in our national interest to have Tibet as a buffer state between India and China.

As far as deportation of Bangladeshi illegal migrants is concerned, there are about 2 crore such illegal migrants in India and they are eating into our vital resources as well as upsetting our demography. So, they must be deported immediately.

The Hindus are in minority in the state of Punjab and J&K and should be accorded minority status in these states.

Regarding abolition of caste based reservations, these reservations are perpetuating the caste system because of which India has not been able to progress since the past eight centuries when foreign invaders occupied it because of Hindus being divided on caste basis. So, such reservations should be immediately withdrawn and reservations should be made only on the basis of poverty.

There is no harm in singing national song and it should be made compulsory for all to sing this song. We should not compromise with our national identity. BJP should include these issues also in its manifesto.
