BJP, AAP protecting black marketeers: Cong

Tuesday, 14 January 2020 | Staff Reporter | NEW DELHI

Holding the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Government at the Centre and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Government in Delhi responsible for the rise in the prices of all essential commodities, Delhi Congress on Monday alleged that both the parties are protecting black-marketeers and hoarders.

Addressing the media, Congress Chief Spokesperson Mukesh Sharma said that the Kejriwal Government has failed to control prices of essential commodities including pulses and vegetables in the last five years. He said that despite the prices of onions soaring to Rs 250 per kg, neither any raid was conducted on hoarders and black marketers nor any action was taken against these people.

"In last five years, the prices of pulses have doubled, cooking oil, bread, onions, potatoes and green vegetables have also seen incessant price rise, but the Kejriwal and Modi Governments were keeping quiet," he said.

Sharma said that cooking gas prices have gone up by Rs 337 per cylinder in the last five, while the prices of IGL piped gas prices have also gone up by Rs 67 which has broken the back bone of middle class people.
