Campaigning for India’s national elections is in full swing. Parties have begun nominating candidates and 543 races for the lower house of parliament are on. But despite the election fever pitch, the two major national parties, the ruling Congress Party and the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party have not yet released their election platforms, or “manifestos,” as they are called. There’s one major state in India, however, where parties have already released their manifestos: Tamil Nadu. Both the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam and the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam have released their documents. And both have some specific positions on India’s policy toward neighboring Sri Lanka.
