The ruling BJP on Wednesday released a manifesto for the Urban Local Body (ULB) elections promising comprehensive development of cities and towns in the state.

The manifesto, titled as “Bharavaseya Belaku” (a ray of hope), promises citizen service centres in all towns and cities on the lines of BangaloreOne, upgradation of roads, construction of ring roads, proper supply of drinking water, development of parks, stadiums, better health facilities among others.
