Even as the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP),Shiv Sena (SS) and Republican Party of India (RPI) have entered into maha-alliance for the municipal corporation elections,the manifesto for all the three parties are being released separately. With differences on development issues in the city,the alliance has decided to go independent with their manifestos.

The BJP is scheduled to release their manifesto on Saturday. Sena,which has already declared their agenda earlier,is yet to decide on releasing the manifesto.

“We are yet decide whether to come out with the manifesto as our agenda has stated it all,’’ said MLC and Sena spokesperson Neelam Gorhe.

RPI though has come out with a separate mainfesto. “Though as an alliance we are together,individually,we have our differences on development issues in the city,’’said a senior RPI member.

Senior BJP party members said basic issue of 4% construction on hill top,which is supported by the party,is not favoured by the Sena. Similarly,while BJP prefers the elevated Metro,Sena is keen for underground Metro. While BJP supports the 24 by 7 water supply issue,Sena has differences on the same too.
