Mangaluru, April 27 (PTI): Congress president Rahul Gandhi released the party's election manifesto on Friday for the Assembly polls to the southern Indian State of Karnataka, that promises creation of one crore jobs over five years.
Gandhi described the manifesto as the "voice of the people of Karnataka" and not a document prepared by "three or four people in a closed room"
He also took potshots at Narendra Modi, saying while the Prime Minister likes to tell people his "mann ki baat", this manifesto contained the "mann ki baat" of the people of Karnataka
Taking a dig at the BJP, Gandhi said the manifesto that the saffron party will release would not be for the people of Karnataka and reflect the views of the RSS
The Congress president claimed that the Siddaramaiah government had fulfilled 95 per cent of the promises made in the manifesto released ahead of the 2013 polls after coming to power
Elections to the 225-seat assembly are scheduled for May 12.
