The Bharatiya Janata Party released its manifesto for the next Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) on Friday pledging pucca houses for all slum dwellers with 100% garbage disposal through the conversion of waste to energy for a green New Delhi, clean and durable.
The party announced that 17,000 apartments ready for allocation will be provided to slum dwellers.
The slums will benefit from facilities of dispensaries, maternity wards and schools run by MCD, according to BJP Delhi Unit Chairman Adesh Gupta.
Reading the 12-point manifesto, Delhi BJP leader Adesh Gupta said that all services of the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) will be brought online through a mobile app.
“One hundred percent of waste will be treated by converting waste into energy for a green and clean Delhi. Every slum dweller will be provided with flats and 17,000 flats are ready for allocation. BJP will also abolish business and sanitary licenses, and also abolish factory licenses,” he said.
He also announced that 50 ‘jan rasois’ run by women will be opened in the city at Rs 5 per meal.
“Free cycles will be provided to deserving girls in MCD schools and all these schools will be transformed into smart schools by 2027,” he added.
The BJP has also pledged 1,000 Chhath Ghats and permanent water bodies in all parks, according to the manifesto.
Separate ID cards will be issued to journalists with free parking and provisions for treatment through separate windows in hospitals.
The Company’s services will be available on mobile phones thanks to electronic governance. The party promised better facilities for Corporation employees.
The BJP has been in power within the MCD – split in 2012 into northern, southern and eastern corporations, then unified this year – for three consecutive terms.
