“It isn’t a ghoshna patra... it’s a sankalp patra,” said the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday, 8 April, as it (finally) released its manifesto for Lok Sabha elections 2019. But many a bemused Twitter user went ahead and rechristened it – “Sambit Patra”.

What’s in a Name?

While Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP President Amit Shah, and Rajnath Singh among others waxed eloquent on the manifesto’s agenda and its focus on national security and development, Twitteratti couldn’t seem to let go of the manifesto’s name – sankalp patra.
