Thrissur: The LDF manifesto for the Thrissur Corporation promises to prepare a master plan for the sustainable development of the city within one year if it is elected to power.
Speaking after releasing the manifesto, former district panchayat president Amabadi Venu said that infrastructure development would be the focus of the LDF.
Power-on-demand with adequate voltage, renovation of drainage system, houses for all, rejuvenation of the agriculture sector and implementation of the Urban Job Guarantee Scheme are the other major highlights of the manifesto.
It says the LDF will take urgent steps to make the city free of plastics.
The manifesto envisages long-term and short-term plans to address the traffic woes in the city.
It promises to construct outer ring roads, subways, over-bridges and flyovers to decongest the city traffic. The manifesto also offers a new drinking water project for drawing water from the Karivannur river, in view of increasing demand for water in the city.
A free food scheme for schoolchildren, projects for women's empowerment, rental housing facility for workers from other States, upgrading of Paravattani Software Technology Park and renovation of the corporation stadiums are the other promises in the manifesto.
