Jaitley said that the BJP will work single-mindedly to ensure that India becomes a strong and secure country.

‘This manifesto not prepared with tukde tukde mindset. Not even an Ivy league mindset. Prepared with strong nationalist mindset by a committee headed by Rajnath Singh and hence rooted in Indian realities’, he said.
