On Saturday, the Congress said that the Modi government has failed to control rising prices and asserted that the anger of the people who are fed up of inflation will be clearly seen in the results of the upcoming elections.
On the rising prices of onion and garlic, Congress general secretary Jairam Ramesh cited a media report. Ramesh, in a post of X in Hindi, said that inflation is continuously increasing and it has become difficult for poor people and the average person to sustain themselves amid this.
Ramesh said that the Narendra Modi government came to power with the promise of reducing inflation. However, it has completely failed to control it in the last nine-and-a-half years. Ramesh said, “To hide its (government’s) failure, it is trying to divert people’s attention.” However, he added that people are seeing and understanding everything.
He added, “The anger of the people troubled by inflation will be clearly visible in the results of the upcoming election.”
Elections are due to take place in five states in the coming weeks and the results will be declared on December 3. The states headed to the hustings are Chhattisgarh, Telangana, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Mizoram.
