RAIPUR: BJP's manifesto for civic polls released on Thursday promises development of at least four cities among 100 smart cities of country, promising electricity in every house and drinking water in all households to be treated as priority.

Releasing the manifesto at BJP office, chief minister Raman Singh announced shelter for poor, hospitals for population of 30,000 in each patch of city, cleanliness and employment for 1.5 lakh people.

Urban development minister Amar Agrawal, agriculture minister Brijmohan Agrawal, BJP national mahamantri Saroj Pandey and BJP state president Dharamlal Kaushik were present during the event.

CM said that while BJP is ruling party in state and Centre, it was a good opportunity to serve people and society. "We would develop big cities in state to smart cities which would further be counted among 100 smart cities plan project of Central government. The nal-jal scheme for providing drinking water in households would be extended and reach each one in city," Singh said.

He added that while Prime Minister Narendra Modi is pushing for campaign for cleanliness in country and availability of toilets in each house, both would be treated as priority.

Of the 119 promises in manifesto were toilets at slum areas, 450 buses for 70 cities in state with reserved seats for women, elders and specially abled, development of lakes, 1.5 lakh pakka houses for poor, shelter homes for homeless, railway over and under bridges and implementation of solid waste management.

Meanwhile, Congress has indicated that it would release party manifesto on December 20 and its main focus would be on drinking water and cleanliness.

Calling BJP's manifesto hollow and full of false promises, Congress spokesperson Shailesh Nitin Trivedi said while BJP has been ruling in state for last several years, who stopped them from developing it with basic facilities of clean water and sanitation. Voting for 10 municipal corporations, 39 municipal councils, and 150 nagar panchayats would be conducted in two phases on December 29 and 31 and the results and counting would be done on January 4, 2015.
