Bangalore, Apr 9 (UNI) Taking a leaf out of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Kaunanidhi's highly successful 'poll offer', Congress in Karnataka today said it would offer free colour TV sets to all families holding a Green Card, if it was voted to power the state.

Informing this to newspersons here, Manifesto Committee Chairman Jaffer Shariff today said that the party would also provide 25 kgs of rice every month at Rs two to all families coming under the below poverty line if it wins in the May elections.

The party also offered Rs 1200 stipend every month to all unemployed youth.

The election manifesto would be released in a day or two, he said.

The colour TV set offered by Mr Karunanidhi before the previous elections to Tamil Nadu Assembly had proved very successful helping DMK bounce back to power with a overwhelming majority.
