The 19-point manifesto includes: launching master plan of GCC urbanisation, removing water logging, providing safe water to the city dwellers, ensuring health care and safe food for people, launching housing projects for working class people.

The manifesto has also commitments on building a new city corporation office building, providing citizen services, tuning with other service providing organisations, bringing in positive impact in the education and transport sectors, enhancing public security with CCTV cameras, limiting pollution and ensuring proper waste management of the city.

Meanwhile, ruling Awami League backed candidate Jahangir Alam termed the manifesto as 'unrealistic' and claimed that BNP and its candidate was doing fraudulence with the people.
