New Delhi: Free education for all in elite schools to erase class conflict, scrapping of mid-day meal scheme to avoid nuisance in schools, free toilets in railway stations and fight against discriminatory taxes.

These and other curious suggestions form the manifesto of National Panthers Party, contesting 18 of the 272 wards in Delhi municipal polls. The manifesto was released here today.

The 21-point manifesto, released by party chairman Bhim Singh, promises that there shall be free and uniform education from nursery to matriculation. The manifesto named three elite schools and promised that these institutions will be available to every child free of cost.

It also said "mid-day meal shall be compensated by providing a scholarship to children".

On the proposal of free education, Singh told PTI there were schools that ask for Rs 25 lakh as donation while there wrere students who cannot afford a pair of shoes to go to school.

"Class conflict would obviously emerge in such a situation," said Singh, who termed the MCD as "Most Corrupt Department".

The party also said government and private schools will be required to fill all vacancies of teachers, abolishion of contractual system and regularisation of MCD employees.
