Responding to a question on the state budget, the Chief Minister said: “The reflection is on an overall development of Karnataka. The economy has suffered over the past two years. It has achieved some semblance of stability over the past 4-5 months. Revenue collection is also picking up.

“However, the budget would be prepared with an objective of overall economic development and public welfare with fiscal discipline,” he noted. “We want to kick start the economy. Greater priority would be given to the welfare of the poor,” he said.

Responding to a query, Bommai said a committee headed by retired IAS officer Mr. Srinivasamurthy has been formed to suggest stimulus measures for RTCs including NWKRTC, KKRTC and BMTC.
