With just a few days left for the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation election, the BJP on Tuesday released its poll manifesto enumerating the work it has done in the city in the past five years and also what it intends to do in the next five years. Notably, the Congress and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) have already released their poll manifestos.
What BJP has promised?
The BJP has promised that it will use technology to solve the traffic issues in the city. In a bid to solve the shortage of parking space, the BJP has said that it will come up with multilevel parking facilities across the city. It has also said that it will further extend pay and park facilities and at the same time, it will come up with a comprehensive parking policy for the city.
In a bid to curb pollution, the BJP has said that it will promote electric vehicles and develop the ecosystem required for the same. It will also promote cycling in the city and will develop cycle tracks. BJP has also said that it will increase the number of air-conditioned AMTS buses and will also include more electric buses for public transport.
BJP has also said that it will start a medical audit system for hospitals and will upgrade the facilities available at LG Hospital. It also said that a new state-of-the-art hospital will be developed in New West Zone.
As far as education is concerned, the party has said that it will transform municipal schools into smart schools and will also focus on the education of girl child. It also said that students will be imparted education in English medium.
BJP’s past claims remain unfulfilled
The saffron party had in 2015 made an array of promises to entice the voters during the AMC elections. However, a significant number of these promises were never fulfilled. Notably, the BJP had promised Wi-Fi services across the city and a dedicated hospital for women in the eastern part of the city. However, these promises were not fulfilled. The party had also promised to turn the city slum-free.
