Hyderabad: Telugu Desam Party on Thursday announced its manifesto for urban and local body elections slated to be held on March 30. Announcing the party manifesto, TDP president N Chandrababu Naidu promised that he would turn the municipal corporations into ‘Navaratnas’, ensure one job per family and would see that youth get maximum encouragement both in education and employment.
Naidu promised that the TDP would supply clean and safe drinking water for Rs 2 for a 20-litre bottle under the NTR Sujala scheme. He also said that his party would take measures to see that there was no question of water shortage in any of the local and urban bodies.
Recalling the development undertaken by the party when it was in power, Naidu said, “It was under the TDP’s rule that urban local bodies in the State were given a proper shape. The TDP government had focused on provision of basic civic amenities to people in all urban areas. In the last 10 years of the Congress rule, urban local bodies were grossly neglected and left to stink.”
He also promised to ensure proper sanitation and hygiene as well as development of green spaces.
“TDP will focus on improving the mass transport system and will introduce Metro Rail services in Vijayawada and Visakhapatnam. Efforts will be made to launch MMTS services. Focus will also be laid on alternative sources of energy and will provide uninterrupted power supply by going in for solar power and other sources,” the TDP chief said.
