BSY rules out power tariff roll back

“Power tariff hike is inevitable. There is no question of re-looking into the issue", he told media persons.

He said the government had to build three lakh houses and relocate 360 villages in the wake of havoc caused by floods in northern Karnataka.
The state could not purchase power spending crores of rupees like last year.
To ensure that there was no shortage during summer, the authorities were resorting to load shedding from now, he added.

He claimed the electoral truck between the Congress and the JD(S) would not affect the BJP in the December 18 elections to the Legislative Council from local authorities constituencies. He said people know what happened during the Lok Sabha elections and the outcome.

He claimed that the ruling party was gearing up to tackle the opposition onslaught in the coming legislature session. The Opposition would try to embarrass the government in the legislature and the ruling party was getting ready to face them, he added.
The CM reiterated that he would reply to mining controversy in the legislature. The state had permitted mining only to those setting up steel industry in the State. The state had no power to cancel mining and it had to be done by the Centre, he stressed.
