BJP starts protest against rising prices

New Delhi, Feb 14: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has started a week-long protests across the country to protest the rise in prices of essential commodities, Sahara Samay sources said.

The BJP president, Rajnath Singh, flagged off six floats at the party headquarters depicting the upward movement of prices of foodgrains, sugar and pulses since the United Progressive Alliance government took office.

Rajnath Singh said the National Democratic Alliance government led by Atal Bihari Vajpayee had contained inflation for six years by keeping a constant watch over the prices of essential items. There was no shortage of cooking gas.

The UPA Government had betrayed the common man by allowing prices to soar. The prices of food items used daily were especially high, well above the over six per cent inflation rate.

He demanded a white paper on the issue and wanted the government to explain why it has not been able to control inflation “although we have an economist as Prime Minister.”
