BJP silent on rising fuel prices: Ramanth Rai

  • Bharath Bandh on Monday, September 10

Mangaluru: When petrol price was Rs 65 per litre during UPA government, BJP blamed the government and held aggressive protest across the nation. But now BJP is mum on rising fuel prices when their own government is at the centre. People will show their anger by protesting on September 10 as we have called for Bharath bandh. Even the gas prices have skyrocketed to Rs 800 per cylinder compared to Rs 400 per cylinder during UPA government,” said former minister Ramanath Rai here on September 8th.

“The rising fuel rises has turned out to be a huge burden on common people. There is no control over the rising prices of petrol and diesel. During UPA government the crude oil price was 108.26 US dollar per barrel and petrol price was Rs 65 per litre. Now in 2018, crude oil price is US 65 US dollar per barrel and the petrol price is Rs 81.63 per litre,” added Mr. Rai.

“We should look back at the video clip of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s speech for his promises. Decreasing the fuel prices was also one among the promises he had made. When Modi said that ‘Acche Din Aayenge’, people had faith in him and today he has failed to fulfil the promises,” the minister observed.

“Congress will observe Bharath Bandh on Monday, September 10 over rising fuel prices,” said Mr. Rai and urged people to show full support for the bandh as it is called with good motive.

“On September 11, Congress will take out a protest march from Shanthi Nilaya to DC office against Rafael deal,” concluded Ramanath Rai.
