In Indian politics, the leaders know that mass of voters has a short memory and how to play with their feelings that can help them to keep away from the promises they may have made during the election campaign. It is a general practice that leaders of various parties offer some attractive promises that can help them attract the mass to have voted in favour of the concerned party.

After the election, neither these promises are kept nor are they serious to follow the manifesto disclaimed at the time of election.
I strongly feel that there must be some provision in law to make the leaders and parties follow the manifesto. Many times I have observed that they promise something about the burning issue of the present time and once they have won the election, they simply make excuses or straight forward say that it was just a part of the election campaign.
In recent years, the promises such as building the Ram Temple, removal of article 370 from the constitution, creating jobs, and nabbing people who are responsible for black money are some of the best examples from where the politicians have driven away and just used these promises as a weapon to win the election.
Unless there is some strict law provisioned for this, they will never stop from lying to the mass of the nation. The best option to nab this menace is putting the responsible politicians behind bars with the help of law for not following the commitments.
