When the Congress ruled India,, there was control over inflation but the budget of the common man has been derailed today, Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel said on Wednesday.
He was addressing a public meeting at Arki in Himachal Pradesh in favour of Congress candidate Sanjay Awasthi. He urged people to vote for the Congress candidate.
Expressing confidence, he said that not only Arki but the Congress will win all four seats in the state because the people are seeking a change, an official communication said.
Baghel said inflation and unemployment are at their peak today. But the Modi government was blind to it.
The security of the nation is also at stake and the farmers are on the roads for the last one year fighting for their rights, he said. Still, Prime Minister Narendra Modi was ignoring them.
During the Congress regime, a cooking gas cylinder cost only around Rs 490. Today its price has exceeded Rs 1,000, he said.
