New Delhi (web team): Four days ahead of Delhi assembly polls, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday released party’s vision document for Delhi, which lays down roadmap to address various challenges facing the city.
Unleashing a slew of promises, BJP promised to make Delhi a world class city, with women security, transparency in governance, housing, power and water supply to be priority areas.
