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

Bengaluru,: 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 elections.

Participating in an interaction with senior citizens here, he promised 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 he would remove the compound walls and iron gates around the Vidhana Soudha to ensure free access to people.
