Assuring state’s business community about addressing their issues, Congress President Rahul Gandhi, on Sunday said that the party is working for a Karnataka manifesto, not a Congress Manifesto.

"We don’t want to create a Congress party manifesto. We want to create a Karnataka manifesto," Gandhi told business leaders and traders here in an interaction.

He also said that he has directed the party’s general secretary for the state, KC Venugopal to have a meeting with a diverse section of the state’s population, so as to incorporate their demands in the manifesto.

"All of you should feel that it is your manifesto," he said.

Assuring to include some demands put forth by businessmen the manifesto, Gandhi said, "But of course you have to realise that the budget of Karnataka is a limited budget. It is not an unlimited budget."

As per the sources, Congress party is trying to emulate the Aam Aadmi Party model of manifesto preparation for the May 12, assembly polls in Karnataka.

Under this, the party is planning to bring out a separate manifesto for each of the 30 districts of the state, focussing on the work needed to be done in those areas.

Ahead of the 2013 Delhi assembly polls, the AAP had carried out consultations with residents of the 60 assembly constituencies in the city and released separate manifestos for these areas promising solutions to area-specific problems.

The Congress party’s manifesto preparation team led by senior leader Veerappa Moily has taken note of the demands coming from each district.

Replying to a query, Gandhi said the Congress will start the process of drafting a national manifesto over next few months.

"We are going to produce a national manifesto of Congress party over the next few months. We are having conversations over it within Congress to create the manifesto. It is a big step. We will start the process," he said.
