CM Bommai – 60 to 70 units of electricity is enough, it is ridiculous that Congress will give 200 units

Bangalore: “Maximum 60 to 70 units of electricity per month is enough for household use. However, it is ridiculous that the Congress has said that they will give 200 units of electricity free of cost to the voters in the wake of the elections. This is a strategy to manipulate the people,” Chief Minister Basavaraja Bommai stung the Congress leaders.

Without a complementary energy policy, the energy department was used for their political gain and the power sector suffered losses,” he indirectly lashed out at KPCC president DK Shivakumar.
