“We thank the BJP for recognising good work done during our party rule,” said city NCP chief Vandana Chavan. She said the BJP has been criticising development work initiated in city but it has mentioned the same plans in their manifesto. The projects like metro rail, BRTS, waste management and health schemes are same as declared by NCP, she said. The NCP is working to retain its power in PMC, while an upbeat BJP, after its domination in the Lok Sabha and Assembly elections, is making an all out effort in the upcoming civic polls with an ambition of gaining power for the first time.
The BJP released its manifesto Friday while the NCP released it on December 29 even before the polls were declared.
