New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party on Friday released a fact sheet based on comparison between the BJP manifestos for the MCD elections of 2012 and 2017. The party said that the BJP’s 2017 manifesto when compared with its manifesto released for 2017 polls, point to the BJP’s failure, lies and betrayal.

The party said that the BJP’s 2017 manifesto for civic polls repeats several of the key promises made by the party in the last manifesto, which it released in 2012. “This is a clear indictment of its own performance in the last five years, as the party admits to its failure in implementing most of its previous promises,” the AAP said. The ruling party in Delhi said that no action has been taken on several promises of the saffron party including providing civic facilities that MCD provides to authorised colonies and JJ clusters, providing social security cards to auto drivers, rickshaw drivers, taxi drivers, feriwallahs, domestic helps, factory workers and workers in the unorganised sector, regularise weekly markets across Delhi, door-to-door waste collection and garbage segregation was promised.

“Despite promising public toilets in markets in the 2012 manifesto, and despite the Swachchh Bharat Abhiyan turning three this year, the BJP-led MCDs have failed to implement this promise. This promise has been repeated in this year’s manifesto,” the AAP said.

The party slammed the BJP for its misleading advertisements that are contradictory to their manifestos from 2012 and 2017.

“The BJP claims to have fulfilled certain promises made in 2012, but they have included the same promises in the 2017 manifesto. Not only that, even the claims made in the advertisements including MCD schools having computers labs and smart classrooms are completely untrue,” the party said.
