The UPA government has become a symbol of “heartless government” as it has failed to understand the pains of inflation borne by the common man, BJP leader Arun Jaitley said today.
“The UPA government was brought to power by the common man but today it has failed to understand their pains. The government is hiking prices of petrol, diesel and has put a cap on LPG cylinders to six. This shows that it has become a symbol of heartless government,” Jaitley said, addressing a demonstration by Delhi BJP Mahila Morcha on the issue of price hike of LPG and power tariff.
The Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha said the decision of putting a cap on the number of subsidised LPG cylinder to six per family shows that the Manmohan Singh government was far removed from reality.
The BJP leader also criticised the Delhi government for hiking power and water tariffs. He alleged that the government was looting the common man to provide benefits to private companies.PTI
