Bengaluru: Former Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy urged the state government to defer its decision to hike power tariffs citing that it will further burden the people amid the pandemic situation.

The Karnataka Electricity Regulatory Commission on Wednesday announced a hike in the power tariff by 40 paise per unit on an average across Escoms in the state.

“People are facing severe economic hardships following the Covid-19 pandemic. All sectors are facing losses. People are left worried without jobs and salaries. It is better to postpone the hike,” tweeted Kumaraswamy on Thursday.
