The Congress has released a 10-point agenda for the coastal region ahead of the Karnataka Assembly elections, focusing on job creation, attracting investments, developing tourism, and creating social harmony. Opposition Leader in the Legislative Council B K Hariprasad announced the charter during the Prajadhwani Yatra event held at Karavali Utsava ground here on Sunday night.

Hariprasad stated that a Karavali Development Authority with a budget of 2,500 crores will be created for the region's development. Karnataka Assembly elections are scheduled for May of this year. Former Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, who addressed the event, said the Congress will not only make promises but will also be able to fulfill them through adequate funding releases. He said that the BJP only uses lies to hypnotize people and that they are ready to divide people based on religion and caste.

The state government is steeped in corruption and that is why contractors named it as a 40 percent commission government, he charged. KPCC president D K Shivakumar said the BJP could not fulfill the promises made in the last elections.

The Congress aims to bring a change in governance and is confident that the party will attain a majority in the coming elections, he added. AICC general secretary Randeep Sujrewala, who also spoke, alleged that BJP has turned the coastal belt into a factory of communalism and it is time to give an apt answer to their false deeds. "When we speak about price rise, the BJP speaks about Hindus and Muslims. We try to connect people but they disconnect people," Surjewala said.

Manifesto committee president G Parameshwara expressed confidence that Congress will come back to power in the state. The party brought a separate poll manifesto for the coastal region to bring about change, he said. Senior leader and former Union Minister Janardhan Poojary, former MLAs Mohiyuddin Bava, Ramanath Rai, Abhayachandra Jain, Vinay Kumar Sorake, and several Congress leaders from the twin coastal districts were present at the event.
