Elections 2019: BJP’s manifesto sheds light on what startups can expect from the new government
The ruling BJP government, led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has swept into power for a second term on Thursday with a decisive majority. The BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) is set to nab more than the 336 seats out of 542 it had held in the previous Lok Sabha.
The BJP’s election manifesto, released in April this year, outlined the party’s plan for developing the country, including startups and small businesses. Prior to the elections, the Hindu nationalist party had come under fire for rising unemployment rates and its failure to create jobs for the youth. But there has been rousing welcome for the government’s plans for digitalisation and the Make in India initiatives.
