Criticising the diesel price hike,Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said it would affect farmers the most.
There have been deficient rains in some states…by increasing diesel prices by Rs 5 per litre,the government has created more pain for those who are already suffering, Modi said,addressing a poll rally at Valsad in south Gujarat.
The diesel hike will have a cascading effect and prices of all essential things will go up. This price hike will prove to be very bad for the farmers of the state where there is drought-like situation, Modi said.
Targeting Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for the price hike,he said,The prime minister is sinking the ship of this country.
