Assembly Elections 2019 LIVE Updates: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will today address rallies in three districts of Maharashtra, including Akola, Partur, and Panvel. His campaign rallies come a day after the BJP released its manifesto for the state. In the manifesto, the party has proposed the names of Mahatma Phule, Savitribai Phule and Veer Savarkar for the Bharat Ratna among promises of one crore jobs and better healthcare facilities.

The PMC Bank scam also found a mention during the manifesto release as CM Devendra Fandavis said, “We will request the Centre to help depositors get their money back. I will personally be following up on this so that all the money of the PMC depositors is returned."

The Congress had, however, taken a potshot at the manifeso saying the BJP should have issue a remorse and apology letter instead of a “Maha-Manifesto"

Amit Shah, on the other hand, will be addressing rallies in Haryana’s Faridabad, Panipat, Jhajjar and Gurugram later in the day.
