Swaraj India releases vision document for Delhi municipal polls 2017
Newly formed political party Swaraj India released its vision document for the Delhi municipal polls on Sunday.

The party has promised governance with zero-tolerance for corruption and a city free from garbage and epidemics. The party is contesting all the 272 seats in the upcoming MCD polls that are likely to be held in April.

"Our vision is to have a clean and caring city that provides civic amenities and healthy environment to every citizen, resident and visitor, where all citizens participate in self-governance and take pride in their city," Party President Yogendra Yadav said while releasing the document.

Yadav also said that in order to improve the functioning of the municipal corporations, their financial health has to be improved.

Yadav also said that the Party has a ready 'action plan' that focuses on improving the quality of living for the people of Delhi through "sustainable solid waste management so as to maximise recycling and minimise waste for landfills," among other measures.

"Our plan of action includes ensuring transparency in the entire tendering process, by placing in the public domain, the tender announcement, bidding process, tender award details, tender completion date, tender payment date," the vision document said.

The party also said that it was planning to adopt a Citizens' Charter outlining a time frame for delivery of key services in order to improve the functioning of the MCD.

For a garbage-free and epidemic-free Delhi, the Party said that it will include "implementation of integrated and coordinated rain water management plan with three-tier approach, ie, prevention, control and re-mediate approach with a special focus on unauthorized colonies, JJ colonies and slum areas," the vision document said.

Yadav also said that the Party plans to create a 'Monsoon Readiness Task Force' that will be specifically kept for the purpose of assessing the city's readiness and highlighting potential failure points every season.

The vision document also talked of cleaning big roads using vacuum cleaners, night cleaning of smaller roads and streets, improving the conditions of safai-karamcharis and equipping them with better tools.

Yadav also said that the party supports takeover of all MCD schools by the state government to improve their condition.
