The Telangana BJP has promised free travel for women in the metro and state transport buses, free tabs for the needy government schoolchildren to aid in online learning.

The party's manifesto for the GHMC elections, scheduled on December 1, also assures Rs 25,000 relief for the flood-affected families, and one lakh houses for the poor under the PM Awas Yojana, if elected to power.

For families who already received Rs 10,000 aid (as announced by the TRS government), rest Rs 15,000 would be credited, the BJP says.

In a controversial assurance, the party document also says that all challans of traffic violations pending on two and three-wheelers would be waived.
