Corruption rate card
Days ahead of the election on May 5, Karnataka Congress came up with a bilingual ‘corruption rate card’ that pointed out various ‘scams’ by the then ruling BJP government. The ‘corruption rate card’ alleged the ruling BJP government had looted ₹1,50,000 crore in the state.
The Congress mentioned that the cost of the CM post was ₹2,500 crore and a ministerial post costs ₹500 crore.
Calling BJP’s ‘double-engine government’ as the ‘trouble-engine government’, the Congress had said “the government demands different deals. It begins with a 30 per cent commission for the mutt grants, 40 per cent for road contracts and goes up to 75 per cent for the Covid supplies.”
