Goa Mahila Congress slams BJP govt over inflation

Panaji, Feb 21 (IANS): Alleging that the ‘double engine’ government has failed to keep inflation in control, Goa Pradesh Mahila Congress (GPMC) on Wednesday stated that failed policies of central and state governments have forced people to rely on firewood to meet their cooking requirements.

Addressing a press conference at Congress House, GPMC President Beena Naik slammed the BJP government for not decreasing the rates of LPG, which now as per trend soar often.

“When Congress was ruling in the country, the same brigade of BJP used to target us on LPG price, which was at Rs 410, but when the rate became Rs 1017 in their regime, neither Prime Minister Narendra Modi nor his ‘jumla’ brigade uttering single word on inflation,” Naik lambasted, adding only during elections they reduce rates to woo voters.

She also pointed out that the BJP government in Goa had promised during the last assembly election to provide three LPG cylinders free, but the scheme has not been implemented. “Like jumla of crediting Rs 15 lakhs to the savings accounts of the public, this is another jumla of the BJP, who have hoodwinked the housewives by not implementing LPG scheme. The BJP government has money to spend and waste it on events which promote their party, but they don’t have money to spend on this scheme,” she lamented.

She said that rates of pulses and other essential goods have skyrocketed, but no measures are taken by the BJP government.

“BJP is using several issues to divert the attention from inflation, people are aware of it and I am sure the poor and middle class will show them doors during the election,” Beena Naik said.

“Our leader Rahul Gandhi is meeting people through his Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra and they are narrating their life stories of how they are suffering. BJP will never be able to understand or feel the pain the people are facing. It is only because they work for crony capitalists and not for the public,” Beena Naik said.
