New Delhi, August 29 (KMS): Senior Congress leader Neeraj Dangi on Monday said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led Central government’s wrong economic policies were responsible for price rise and unemployment in the country.
Neeraj Dangi addressing a press conference in Bhubaneswar said: “There was a time when Prime Minister Modi dangled a dream in front of the people of India: a future free from inflation and unemployment. Instead, Modi has delivered a nightmare of record price rise and the highest joblessness in 45 years.”
“The Prime Minister has not just failed to control price rise since coming to power in 2014, his misguided policies and deceitfulness have in fact exacerbated the sufferings of the people,” he added.
The LPG cylinder, which was sold at a price of Rs 410 in 2014, now costs between more than Rs 1,053 to 1,240 per cylinder. Similarly, the prices of petrol and diesel have been increased by 40 per cent and 75 per cent respectively during Modi government’s tenure, he said.
Stating the Indian National Congress stands with the people in these difficult times, the Congress leader said: “From ‘Sansad to Sadak’, we have raised our voice against the incompetence and the misguided policies of the Modi government that have exacerbated price rise and joblessness in India.”
He said that his party is going to hold a ‘Mehangai Par Halla Bol’ rally at the Ramlila Maidan in Delhi on September 4.
