#BBCtrending: India's manifesto war on Twitter

As India begins to vote for new leaders, people are checking the fine print of the manifestos on social media.

The BJP, the opposition party led by Narendra Modi, are the current favourites to win. They've just released their manifesto - and it has sparked a "twar".

The Congress Party, which leads the current government, has accused the BJP of copying their own policies.

For BBC Trending, Mukul Devichand reports from Congress HQ in Bangalore.
