Delhi polls: AAP to release manifesto on Saturday


New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will on Saturday release its manifesto for the Delhi Assembly Elections, a week before polling begins in the city.

The manifesto is expected to focus on the party`s agenda for ensuring development, women`s safety and water and electricity supply across the city.

Earlier on Thursday, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) announced that it will eschew a manifesto for the Delhi polls and will instead come up with a `vision document`.

The party also announced that it would ask Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal five questions everyday till February 6, provoking a strong reaction from AAP leaders.

Delhi goes to polls on February 7, with counting of votes set to take place on February 10.
