Sukhbir slams upa for failure to check inflation

Chandigarh December 18:

Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) and Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal today suggested that the UPA-Government should quit for its total failure to curb rising prices of all essential commodities.

In a statement issued here, Mr Badal slammed the Union Government for its insensitive attitude towards the misery of the common man being crushed by the spiraling prices of all essential commodities. He said that touching of inflation to the unprecedented figure of 20 per cent, highest ever in last 12 years, shows the total failure of economic policies of the Government.

He said that the Union Agriculture, Finance as well as Commerce ministries failed to come up with a coordinated approach to tackle the problem of rising prices. Calling upon people to expose the corrupt policy of the Congress led Union Government, Mr Badal said that deliberate timing of imposing and relaxing curbs on import and export was responsible for 'calculated price rise' by various lobbies.

He regretted that with pulses being sold at Rs 90 plus level per kg, Union government accepting its failure to bring the price down, was now advising people to opt for dry peas instead of protein rich cereals, denying 70 per cent of population the only source of protein. He said that now even companies were feeling ashamed to put pulses at Rs 90 per kg on the rate list and they had shamefully amended the rate lists, giving the rate of pulses per half kg to camouflage the 100 per cent hike in the price of pulses during last four months.

Mr Badal said that NDA had been pressing in Parliament for adjournment motion to discuss the important issue of price rise but with Prime Minister busy in Copenhagen discussing Environment and Agriculture Minister busy in Indo-Sri Lanka One Day Series, the Congress led UPA does not think that price rise was the issue of any discussion in Parliament.

He said that NDA would soon call on the President, requesting her to intervene in the issue or dismiss the government for its failure and inability to perform its constitutional duties of protecting life of citizen of India who were dying of hunger due to extra ordinary price hike of eatables.
