New Delhi, July 4 (ANI): Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Lal Krishna Advani on Sunday slammed Congress led Government at the Centre for being insensitive towards inflation.

"Unfortunately, there is no indication that the government has any solution to control inflation. Forget about the solution, they have become insensitive about the issue," said Advani.

Talking about the all-India shutdown on Monday, Advani said that it would be for the first time that so many opposition parties would come together and support the 'Bharat Bandh'.

"Tomorrow may be the first time in the history of Indian politics, where almost all political parties come together to support the shutdown," said Advani.

Meanwhile, Sharad Yadav said the members of several parties have been organising meetings regarding the shut down and it will be the kind of shutdown, which the country has never witnessed before.

"Workers are organising meetings on district, state, national level. The public is suffering a lot, so I want to say that the shutdown will definitely be successful, and a unique one, like the country has never seen before," said Yadav.

The shutdown has been called to protest the soaring prices of commodities.

Earlier on June 25, a ministerial panel headed by Mukherjee, had lifted the pricing controls on petroleum following which the price of petrol went up by Rs 3.50 a litre.

The Government hiked the prices of diesel by Rs.2 a litre, kerosene by Rs.3 a litre and cooking gas by Rs.35 per cylinder. (ANI)
