Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai on Thursday dismissed as ”irresponsible and irrational” the election promise made by opposition Congress to provide 200 units of free power to all households every month if voted to power in the state.
He also said the announcement showed ”how low they are in the electoral race”.
”It is an irresponsible and irrational decision. They (Congress) are desperate. That’s why they are announcing. Many more such announcements are expected from Congress,” Bommai told reporters here.
”You expect more (freebies) because of the desperation”.
