Congress PartyBengaluru, April 26, 2013: With barely two weeks left for assembly elections in Karnataka, Congress party on Wednesday released its manifesto, promising implementation of the recommendations made in Justice Ranganath Misra Commission and Justice Sachar Committee reports.

Implementation of all central government schemes for minorities, restoration of Waqf properties to the Waqf board, establishment of residential schools at all district level, with 75% reservation for minorities, were some of the highlights of minority-friendly programmes included in the manifesto.

While Congress was the last of the major political parties to unveil its list of programmes, the ruling BJP which did so on 19 April, has nothing specific or substantial in bag for the minority community.

Janata Dal (Secular) on the other hand, has promised to create 100 hostels for Muslim women students, protection of places of worship of minorities and a corpus of Rs. 2000 crores to implement the recommendations of Justice Sachar Commission among others.

Former Karnataka Chief Minister, B S Yeddyurappa whose Karnataka Janata Party (KJP) will contest assembly elections for the first time, had earlier this month promised a budget of Rs. 2,000 crore for the development of Muslim community and creation of employment and basic amenities, if elected to power.
