A BJP candidate for the Uttar Pradesh civic body polls was booked by the police for violating the model code of conduct in Muzaffarnagar district.

Ritu Jain, who is contesting on a BJP ticket for the municipal corporation in Khatauli, has been booked for putting up publicity signboards without the permission of authorities, Sub-Divisional Magistrate Ram Avtar Gupta said.

The civic body polls will be held in three phases in the state on November 22, 26, and 29.

The polls are being held eight months after the BJP came to power with a landslide victory in the assembly elections.

Free WiFi at prominent public places, "pink toilets" for women and free water connections to all homes are among the key promises made in BJP's Sankalp Patra released in Lucknow on Sunday.

The manifesto comprises 28 promises (sankalp) including better drinking water facilities, improved street lighting, free community toilets, pink toilets for women, grant of Rs 20,000 for the construction of personal toilets, provision of adarsh nagar panchayat, e-tendering and 'kanji' houses for stray animals.
