Government to blame for price rise: Chandy

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Leader of the Opposition Oommen Chandy has held the LDF government responsible for the rise in prices of all goods other than that of petroleum products.

Inaugurating a State conference of the INTUC-led All Kerala Tipper, Excavator Lorry Drivers, Operators and Workers Association here on Friday, he said the State government would have even increased the prices of petroleum products if it had the authority for it.

He charged the government with using the hike in prices of petroleum products to squeeze the people even though many States, including West Bengal, had forgone their share of the tax to provide relief to the people. The government had defied even the Polit Bureaus directives to give up its share of the tax.
