He said Agra deserves a much better deal for its contribution to history and India's secular ethos.

"Corruption-free governance is our top priority. But we also have a set of goals for the Taj city which has to be recognised as a heritage city. The BJP, the Congress and the Samajwadi Party have done nothing to make Agra worthy of the Taj Mahal," he said.

Singh said he would make efforts to make Agra a Wi-Fi city so that tourists, who come here, can remain connected through the Internet and the students enjoy the full benefits of computer technology.

The AAP will also work to split Agra University into three.

“In the last 10 years we have seen how the university has played havoc with the future of students. The university cannot cope with its voluminous size, reflected in the number of colleges affiliated from Noida to Lucknow," he said.

The AAP also has plans to unveil a health scheme for the more than three lakh workers in Agra's famous shoe industry.

Singh is pitted against BJP’s Ram Shankar Katheria, Bahujan Samaj Party’s Narayan Singh and Samajwadi Party’s Maharaj Singh Dhangar.
