Motilal Oswal Securitie’s recent note suggests that the BJP might secure a third consecutive term with a full majority, citing opinion polls. They noted that BJP’s manifesto, “Modi ki Guarantee 2024”, shows the party’s confidence in returning to power, avoiding costly freebies that would strain the budget. 

The 2024 BJP manifesto emphasises broad-based development through government initiatives with socio-economic impacts. Key priorities include infrastructure development, making India a global manufacturing hub, and focusing on Capex. The BJP aims to strengthen digital and physical infrastructure, empower MSMEs, and provide piped natural gas connections to major cities and towns. 

The broker mentioned that the BJP plans to build India as a key manufacturing hub (Electronics, Defense, Aviation, Railways, and Renewable Energy), strengthening digital and physical infrastructure, and empowering MSMEs. Providing piped natural gas connections to all major cities and towns is outlined as another priority.
