The BJP had earlier instituted a committee under former Lieutenant Governor Vijay Kapoor and these issues are based on its ‘report’. “The party manifesto was released a long time back. We,however,wanted to focus on a few issues critical for Delhi that are directly linked to the Centre’s policies,” said V K Malhotra,Leader of Opposition in the Delhi Assembly.

Malhotra and Kapoor were addressing a press conference at the Delhi BJP office on Sunday.

The list,however,read like a repeat of the party’s agenda for the 2008 Assembly polls.
