H D Deve Gowda has equated the manifesto of his party, the Janatha Dal (S) to a Bhagwad Gita, Quran and the Bible.
The Janatha Dal (S) which is hopeful of bettering its position has focused on two crucial points in its manifesto. Farmers and corruption are the two major aspects of its manifesto and the party says that it would be implemented religiously if voted into power.
While assuring to waive off all farmer loans in the state, the JD(S) manifesto also proposes to set up a unit called the Third Eye which would monitor the performance of the government. This is something that the JD(S) proposes to set up to monitor the functioning of the government and give it advise in case it is going wrong somewhere.
Tackling corruption is another issue in the JD(S) manifesto and the party promises that it would act soon in such cases. A maximum of three months would be taken to file a chargesheet in any case of corruption the manifesto states.
