Ahead of next year’s municipal elections in Delhi, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is building on central government plans to fight power.
The chairman of the BJP unit in Delhi, Adesh Gupta, on Tuesday distributed 35 LPG connections in slums under the ambitious Ujjawala Yojana of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“These programs are for all the oppressed and disadvantaged in the country. It is our duty as BJP soldiers to ensure that such programs reach all in need. We are very certain of our victory in the next municipal elections, ”said Naveen Kumar, spokesperson for the Delhi BJP.
Besides the free LPG cylinder program, the Center pension for the elderly, scholarships for students from economically weaker sections (EWS) and other programs are widely implemented in the unauthorized settlements and slums of the national capital to counter the free water and electricity programs of the AAP.
“We have made the city waste-free and recycling is in full swing at the three landfills. We are committed to the Swacch Bharat cause and people will support us for it, ”said Naveen Kumar.
Elections for 272 wards of the three municipal corporations — North, East and South — are scheduled for early next year. The BJP succeeded in securing a majority in all three municipal corporations, with the AAP securing second place and Congress third.
