Cong General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Hits Out at Centre Over Rising Prices of Essential Commodities

Author : Odisha Today Bureau | Posted on: 2020-01-14

Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra today (Tuesday) hit out at the government over spiralling prices of vegetables and essential commodities which is hitting the poor. The Congress leader’s comments come a day after data showed that retail inflation rose to about 5-and-half year high of 7.35% in December 2019, surpassing the RBI’s comfort level, mainly due to spiralling prices of vegetables as onions were selling costlier.



 

Priyanka Gandhi accused the government of picking pockets of the common man and also taking away their livelihood.



 

She said in a tweet in Hindi, “The prices of vegetables and other edible commodities are getting out of reach of the common man. What will the poor eat when vegetables, oil, pulses and flour turns expensive. The poor are not even getting employment due to the economic recession. The BJP government has not just picked the pockets of the poor but also kicked on their stomach.”
