Price rise is a result of corruption: BJP

Written by: Staff

New Delhi, Jan 29: While the government is engaged in a blame game over the price rise, BJP on Friday, Jan 29 said that the reason behind the rise in prices of commodities is not only mismanagement but also corruption.

BJP National Secretary Balbir Punj said that instead of finding a way out of price rise, the government was busy playing the blame game.

"While the Congress is blaming food minister Sharad Pawar for allowing things to drift, the latter, in turn, was arguing that PM's policies are primarily responsible for the rise," Punj said.

He added that the goverment's mismanagement and corruption has become evident in the case of essential commodities like rice and sugar.

"A year ago, he said, India exported sugar at Rs 11.05 per kg. Now the country was importing sugar at a price of Rs 40-45 a kg, he said. In case of rice, the country exported huge quantities at a very low price through a single export house in New Delhi. Both the deals were involved in corruption and the common man is now paying a heavy price for it," he alleged.

Comparing the smoooth creation of Uttarkhand, Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh by the NDA with the complications relating to Telangana, Punj said that the government's arrogance can also be seen in the way the Telangana issue is being handled.

"Government did not bother to take into confidence the opposition but also its own allies and the Congress as a whole," he said.
