Congress President Rahul Gandhi released Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee’s (KPCC) election manifesto,and declared that the manifesto contained 'Mann Ki Baat' of the people of the state.
"This manifesto is unlike Prime Minister’s 'Mann Ki Baat', where he reveals what he likes to do,’’ Rahul said while releasing the manifesto at T M A Pai international convention centre on Friday.
He said unlike BJP’s manifesto, decided by three BJP leaders in a closed-room, the party’s manifesto is the expectations of people from the government. The manifesto committee had interacted with communities, at block and district level in order to listen to what is good for them.
"This is the philosophy which separates Congress from its opponents." Taking potshots at BJP, Rahul said their manifesto is not of people of Karnataka it is the manifesto of RSS. "BJP’s manifesto includes corruption, about Reddy brothers," he charged.
Rahul described his visits to Karnataka for past three months as 'an enlightening experience', and thanked people for showing rest of country the path forward.
"A state will not have a future if its region is not respected," he said. "This manifesto is a lesson to BJP or JD(S) on how public manifestos should be drafted," he added.
"Having implemented 99 per cent of programmes listed in Budget, this government does not face any anti-incumbency wave," he asserted.
Rahul Gandhi became the first party president to do so in the state. It was also for the first time that the party’s manifesto was released outside Bengaluru.
