Terming its 47-page manifesto a "people's manifesto", the party said it wants to create a hut-free Karnataka and would build 50 lakh houses in the rural parts of the state. "This is made by going to every single district and every single community". "There would also be some amount of corruption and some ideas from the Reddy brothers".
