BJP national spokesperson Prakash Javadekar came down heavily on the UPA government for having done a complete U-turn on the issues of WTO,climate change,petroleum price and dialogue with Pakistan.

At a press meet in the city,he said post election the government’s stand seems to have completely changed.

“Before the elections their stand was not to raise the petroleum prices and post elections they have increased the prices of petrol by Rs 4 and diesel by Rs 2 even though international prices are hovering around Rs 70 dollars per barrel. This is betrayal of the people,” he said.

He said he would take up the issues in both the houses.

“The election promises have not been kept and it is betrayal of trust reposed by people,” he added.

Even as government had suspended talks with Pakistan after 26/11,there is a change in the present scenario wherein the government has allowed Pakistan to equate with India as victim of terror and even allowed Baluchistan to figure in the joint statement,he said.

Javadekar also criticised the government for dithering on their stand on WTO.

He said the G8 declaration and India’s acceptance of new concept paper is complete surrender on climate change.
