The Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) impression is quite evident on the BJP’s Delhi manifesto to be released on Wednesday.
As per party sources, a strong and effective Lokayukta and greater transparency through e-governance will figure in the manifesto.
On the lines of the AAP-led Delhi government, the Delhi BJP has also promised to put in place a helpline for reporting corruption cases. The party will also promise to form an accountability commission to fix responsibility of the bureaucrats and politicians.
Just as the AAP gover nment had promised to put in place a separate campus for east Delhi and bring back the duration of the undergraduate degree course to three years, the BJP will promise the same in its manifesto, which will be released by state unit president Harsh Vardhan.
“The BJP has already released a national manifesto. But a few concerns of Delhi had to be addressed separately and so this manifesto has been prepared.
We have added a few new things to it while at the same time a number of our previous demands such as complete statehood is still a part of it," said a senior BJP leader.
A number of BJP candidates such as Vardhan and Ramesh Bidhuri have also come up with their own separate vision documents for their constituencies.
“The promise to reduce power bills by 30 per cent has been included in this manifesto but we will not announce a subsidy for it.
A number of other mechanisms such as accounting of the power discoms, encouraging consumers to opt for solar energy will be put in place,” said a senior BJP leader.
