Free bus, Metro passes to elders if JD(S) comes to power: HDK

JD(S) state president H D Kumaraswamy on Wednesday promised to provide free healthcare service, free bus and Metro passes and increase the old-age pension for senior citizens if his party is voted to power in the coming Assembly elections.

Participating in an interaction with senior citizens in Bengaluru, he also assured to ensure allotment of residential plots at an affordable price to people in Bengaluru. The government has failed to form BDA layouts in the past four-and-a-half years. Instead, it has been denotifying BDA lands to favour real estate companies, he charged.

Kumaraswamy said that he would remove the compound walls and iron gates around the Vidhana Soudha to ensure free access to the people.

"The JD(S) will not form coalition government by joining hands with any party. My aim is to form the government on our own by winning 113 seats. Nobody can stop the JD(S) from coming to power irrespective of predictions being made by various media houses," he stated.
