Ranchi, Aug 27: Senior BJP leader Dharmendra Pradhan today sought to know why prices were still "out of reach" of the common man despite the Centre's "intermittent assurances" to the people that prices of commodities would be brought under control.

"Time to time the UPA government has assured the people that prices would come down, but prices went out of control," the BJP's nation general secretary said here.

"Prices went out of control due to wrong policies of the Congress-led UPA government," claimed Pradhan while addressing a party rally near Raj Bhavan.

Claiming that rampant corruption had led the people to support Anna Hazare's movement against corruption, he said "it was because of the Supreme Court's intervention that the accused, including a former Central minister, are now in judicial custody in connection with corruption."

The Ranchi city and rural units of the BJP organized the rally in support of Anna Hazare, BJP's state unit spokesman Pradip Sinha said and added partymen took out a motor-cycle procession which culminated at the meeting venue.

Meanwhile, several groups continued sit-ins and relay fasting in support Hazare, whose fast entered the 12th day today at Ramlila ground in Delhi, across Jharkhand.

The Sadan Ekta Manch observed a dawn-to-dusk shutdown in Dumka to demand early enactment of the Janlok Pal bill with its head Radhesyam Verma leading a process across Dumka town in support of Hazare.
