Thursday BJP released its manifesto for Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) polls – – which it is aggressively campaigning for this time – – promising free coronavirus vaccine and testing for all, free water, free energy, free tablet PCs and fast WiFi for economically disadvantaged children.
The manifesto was issued by the former head of the Maharashtra government, Devendra Fadnavis.
“In Telangan, we saw how statistics on coronavirus cases were suppressed and how people in the state went to private hospitals. How people had to pay hundreds of thousands of rupees for treatment. We would like to declare that the corporation will play an active role and ensure that no one will have to rush to any private hospital for a vaccine, ”said Fadnavis.
The party has promised to create exclusive primary health care centers (primary care centers) for Covid vaccines and to conduct tests in different areas of Greater Hyderabad, based on the population.
BJP has also promised free rides for female commuters on Hyderabad’s subway and city buses.
Elections to the GHMC council are scheduled for December 1, and the vote count is scheduled for December 4. As many as 1,825 candidates for 150 city departments. In 2016, BJP only won four leagues.

Calling its manifesto a reflection of the people’s aspirations, the Saffron Party promised to celebrate “Mukti Diwas” as a state function on September 17, when the Tricolor was raised in Hyderabad after the state joined the Indian Union.
He also promised the rejuvenation of the Musi River and the expansion of the wharf from central funds. “Freeing nulls and tanks from all kinds of interference. Create an exclusive budget of Rs 10,000 crore for the modernization of open nullahs and sewers, ”the manifesto promises, along with the Sumedha Act, to remove all obstacles. Ten-year-old Sumedha died after falling into an open sewer during recent rainfall in the city.

“Hyderabad has allowed large-scale interference in the policies of the voting banks. Hyderabad poured out not only because of the rain, but also because of the policies of the city’s corporations that protected these intrusions. The people of Hyderabad had to bear the greatest burden. Wherever people can be moved, it will be done in a planned manner, ”said Fadnavis.
A total of 25,000 rupees in the bank accounts of each of the families affected by the flooding in Greater Hyderabad is another key promise. Families who have already received Rs 10,000 in compensation will receive the remaining Rs 15,000.
The party is also promising financial aid to the poor to build houses worth 100,000,000 under the leadership of Pradhan Manthri Awas Yojana (PMAY). They promised to abolish property tax in all SC colonies and slum areas, as well as a free permit to build houses on plots of less than 125 m2.
The party also pledged to provide free energy to all homes consuming less than 100 units a month, free energy and loans to all professionals in traditional occupations, tap connections, and free drinking water for all homes.
It also talks about the elimination of the TRS’s Pet Layout Regularization Scheme. “This will buy the people of Greater Hyderabad from the LRS burden for 15,000 crore,” the manifesto said.
BJP President JP Nadda, Interior Minister Amit Shah and UPA head Adityanath are expected to fight for this party in the coming days.
