The Congress' Delhi unit on Wednesday promised RO water purifiers to the poor, day-boarding facility at MCD-run schools and waiving off previous house tax dues in its manifesto for elections to the civic body here.

Launching the manifesto, Congress leader Supriya Shrinate said the water provided by the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) had always been "unfit" for regular use and extremely contaminated to consume.

"The water provided by the MCD has never been fit for regular use, forget consuming it. It is extremely contaminated. Delhi Congress promises 'Saaf Paani Wali Dilli, Sheila Dikshit Wali Dilli'," Shrinate said.

The Congress has also promised a pollution- and garbage-free national capital. It will clear the landfill sites and provide better parking facilities for all.
