Bengal: BJP launches ‘Kolkata Jitbe, Jitbe BJP' manifesto for municipal polls

On Wednesday, BJP released its manifesto –‘Kolkata Jitbe, Jitbe BJP‘(Kolkata will win, BJP will win)– for the Kolkata Municipal Corporation elections. Leader of Opposition Suvendu Adhikari and BJP leader Dinesh Trivedi released the manifesto.

The manifesto called for the establishment of an economic gateway, the resolution of Kolkata’s water-logging problems, and the digitisation of permissions.

“Kolkata has the potential to be an eastward economic gateway. We will apply for permission to build structures and install water pipes online,” BJP leader Dinesh Trivedi said.

“We have centuries-old British pipelines that run beneath the city. We must change them to avoid water-logging,” he added.

Speaking at the event, Suvendu Adhikari said the mayor’s seat in Kolkata deserves a better candidate.

“I hope people of Kolkata vote for BJP so that the man who sits in Netaji’s chair in the Corporation, Firhad Hakim, the same man who told Pakistani journalists that the port area is Mini Pakistan, is removed,” Adhikari said.

The manifesto also stated that the BJP will establish sports and cultural institutions in each district of Kolkata. Every ward will have a health clinic where free medicines will be distributed.

“Cut money was still prevalent, and councillors were the primary source. The need to go digital will help in getting rid of cut money,” said Trivedi.

“People are still struggling as a result of cut money. Councillors accept cut money for anything. TMC MP Sugata Bose had to pay cut money to paint his own house,” added Trivedi.

Cut money is the unofficial commission charged by some local politicians for getting government grants for local area projects approved.
