Its poll time in Karnataka

Once again. So whats new? Nothing much. Except that it is a different year. We have the same set of politicians, politicians families, politicians under different parties that they were in the last election promising the same.

The Congress has started off with rice for 2 rupees a kg and a TV. They also promise cheap loans for farmers. Great. Did you ask the people what they want?

Just in case that is difficult to fathom, they would need a few useless things like perhaps good roads, a wee bit more reliable electricity, good public transport, more infrastructure work like the metro.

2 rupee rice will be about as edible as asphalt and the TV, well, once they get electricity, they can use the TV. This, of course, is just the beginning of the Tamasha here.

Karnataka, this time atleast I hope escapes from the clutches from the Joint development family. Watch this space.
