Lucknow, Apr 27 (ANI): Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati on Tuesday slammed the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) Government for pursuing policies leading to price rise, adding that price rise is a big worry.

"Our principle concern has been the spurt in prices," said Mayawati.

"The government must control fuel prices. The government's economic policy is a reason for price rise," she added.

"Congress led UPA Government needs to re-asses its policies," Mayawati claimed.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister further said the Centre did not provide assistance to the State Government during the price rise.

Mayawati, however, said that she would oppose the cut motion to be introduced in the Parliament by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led Opposition and will support the Central Government on the same.

"Bahujan Samaj Party will support the UPA Government on the cut motion issue," said Mayawati.

The BJP-led Opposition is all charged up to introduce a cut motion over rising prices in Parliament today, as on Monday it issued a whip to all its MPs to ensure all its leaders support the cut motions tomorrow.

Cut motions are usually issued by members of the opposition in the legislature to criticize the policy behind the financial estimates of the government.

Cut motions can be of three types: disapproval of policy cut, economic cut and token cut. (ANI)
