BJP's MCD poll manifesto promises meals for Rs 10, no new tax

The BJP promised to provide meals for Rs 10, besides pledging not to levy any new municipal tax, as it released its manifesto with an eye to win the upcoming MCD polls for the third consecutive time.

The 'Sankalp Patra' (manifesto), described by BJP leaders as the "charter of commitment", also promised to work towards a Delhi "as envisioned by Prime Minister Narendra Modi".

On the lines of the Yogi Adityanath-led Uttar Pradesh government's proposal to provide food at subsidised rates and the Aam Aadmi Party's (AAP) decision to start its own canteens, the manifesto promised to provide meals for Rs 10 under a new scheme.

"A scheme, the Deendayal Antyodaya Rasoi Yojana, will be launched and the civic bodies will provide meals priced at Rs 10," said Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari, who released the manifesto along with senior party leaders, including Union ministers Harsh Vardhan and Vijay Goel.

The elections for the 272 wards of the three municipal corporations in New Delhi are due on April 23. The BJP, which ruled the unified Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD), had also won the three corporations after the trifurcation of MCD in 2012.
