Congress plans to release three manifestoes for Assembly polls

For the first time, the Congress is planning to bring out three separate manifestoes- state, region, and district wise- for the upcoming Karnataka Assembly elections.  

The state-level manifesto will list out programmes which will be applicable across the state while zonal-level manifesto will have details of the projects targeting the particular region or zone, senior Congress leader and Congress Manifesto Committee chairman M Veerappa Moily told DH here on Wednesday.

The district-level manifesto will comprise the projects which are going to to be implemented in that particular district if the party comes to power, the Congress leader said.

The state manifesto will be released by party president Rahul Gandhi in Bengaluru at a big event. Simultaneously, in zonal levels important leaders of that region will release the zonal manifesto. Subsequently, senior local leaders will release the district-wise manifesto, Moily said.

Manifesto release function will be a grand event that will be shown live at party offices across the the state via video conferencing.

"Already, I have held over a dozen meetings in various regions and with representatives of different sectors. Again, we will ask the party workers and public to provide their inputs. Taking everything into account, we will prepare comprehensive manifestoes, Moily said. Though demand for separate religion tag for Lingayat is a long standing one of that community, the Congress will not mention this in the manifesto, the former chief minister.

No promises

The proposed Congress manifesto will cover several socio-economic and political subjects and it will not make promises to any particular community as our organisation is a secular one, he said.

The Congress manifesto will focus on the party's achievements in its current term and its promises for the next five years, the manifesto committee chairman added.
