BJP blames PM for foodgrains price rise

T’PURAM: Continuing its tirade against the Congress-led UPA Government at the Centre for the rise in the price of essential commodities, BJP Saturday alleged Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has failed to lead the nation in the right direction.

At an anti-price rise rally organised by the state unit here as part of the party's nation-wide stir, BJP president Nitin Gadkari said Manmohan Singh was an economist but had failed to check inflation and price rise.

Alleging that wrong economic policy of the Congress was the root cause of inflation in the country, Gadkari alleged whenever the party ruled the country, "inflation and price rise were high".

It was a shame that the suicide rate among farmers and the poor in the country was on the rise due to the policies pursued by Congress, he alleged.
