New Delhi: Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Sunday hit out at the Modi government at the Centre over the hike in the prices of domestic LPG cylinders. In a tweet, he said, "Only his party works for the betterment of poor and middle class families.''
You are all aware that the price of cooking gas increased by Rs 50 per cylinder on Saturday, which is the second increase in prices in more than six weeks. Yes, in such a situation, Rahul compared the prices of domestic cylinders in a tweet. "In 2014, in the Congress-led government, the price of LPG cylinder was Rs 410 with a subsidy of Rs 827, while in 2022, under the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led government, its price is more than Rs 999 and the 'subsidy' is also 'nil'.''
At the same time, he said, "Today the price of one cylinder is equal to the price of two cylinders. The former party president said that "congress works for the betterment of poor and middle-class Indian families". This is the core of our economic policy. After the hike in-cylinder prices on Saturday, Rahul had tweeted that crores of Indian families were fighting a tough fight against "extreme inflation", unemployment and "poor governance".
