NEW DELHI : Trying to return to power after a gap of two decades, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has promised in its Sankalp Patra (manifesto) that national capital will have a corruption free and transparent government that will focus on development of Delhi.
Senior leaders of the BJP believe that the party has been able to set an example in the form of National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government at the centre. Members of BJP have promised that the party would try to make Delhi a truly world class city if it is able to return to power in the national capital.
“BJP believes that the biggest problems before the people of Delhi are air and water pollution. The union government has taken steps to ensure that there is respite from the problem. Delhi needs long term planning and vision and not a government which only believes in giving freebies," said union minister Nitin Gadkari while releasing the manifesto of BJP before the assembly elections.
Ahead of the voting in Delhi on 8 February, BJP has promised 10 lakh jobs in five years, water in every home of Delhi, infrastructure projects worth Rs55,000 crore for road network in national capital region, fill all vacant posts in Delhi, ownership for resettlement colonies, another Rs10,000 crore for infrastructure development in Delhi, electric scooters for college going girls, bicycle for girls in class 9th, Rs51,000 for marriage of girls of financially weaker sections.
“We have decided to set up Colony Development Board which will benefit more than 50 lakh people. The Board will work for development of colonies which have been regularised. If BJP forms government, we will try to solve the problem of sealing in Delhi which has troubled the people for a long time," said Manoj Tiwari, president of BJP in Delhi.
Emphasising on the development of financially and socially weaker sections in Delhi, BJP said in its manifesto that it would give wheat flour at Rs2 per kilogram to poor and would also implement Ayushman Bharat Scheme, housing for all scheme and PM Kisan scheme in Delhi. “We will build 10 new colleges and 200 new schools in Delhi. The state government has failed to create any new colleges in the past five years," said Tiwari.
BJP leaders have also promised to build a library in all the 280 wards of Delhi, focus on fit India and fit Delhi campaign, make Delhi cleaner, create auto and taxi stands in Delhi, and also work for creation of more startups in Delhi.
