The recent move by the Narendra Modi government to hike the prices of petrol, diesel and LPG has certainly not gone down well with people, with the decision facing wide-spread criticism. Joining the wagon on Wednesday was Congress general secretary Digvijaya Singh, who took on the Modi government over the issue.

The Congress leader posted a tweet, claiming that Modi government’s plan to take strong action against hoarders and black marketeers was the same thing that the previous UPA government tried to do.

Taking on the Narendra Modi government, the Congress leader further questioned the existence of a price stabilisation fund, which was promised by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in its Lok Sabha polls manifesto.

This comes after petrol price was on Monday hiked by a steep Rs 1.69 per litre and diesel by 50 paise a litre. And a day after that, price of non-subsidised cooking gas (LPG) was hiked by Rs 16.50 per cylinder and that of jet fuel by over half-a-per cent.

    UPA also did the same thing but BJP promised do everything different and came to power. Why are they not doing now ? When you fools criticised UPA for everything why not we criticise NDA ?

    The price stabilization fund will be over flowing once the black money from swiss bank accounts of congress ministers is brought back.Wait Diggi, wait.If you haste, your local accounts may get affected.
