In a press briefing Tom Vadakkan, spokesperson of the Indian National Congress, talked about the hypocrisy of Prime Minister Modi. Before becoming Prime Minister Mr. Modi said that rising prices of fuel showed the incompetency of the government and that Prime Minister at the time, Dr. Manmohan Singh, should reduce the price of fuel.
Prices of petrol have not been increased every day for 16 days in the history of the country. In the last five days, global crude prices have been falling while the Brent price was $80 per barrel on the 23rd of May and it is now $75 per barrel. Instead of reducing the price of petroleum products, the prices have been increased. Every increase in the price of petrol increases the price of all commodities.
The BJP and Prime Minister Modi have been involved in campaigning for the last three days but they should know that they are out of time. EVM machines are out of order, the story being told is that it is because of the heat, but how is it that even at7 am these machines were not functioning. Complaints have been made to the election commission but to no avail. It is time that the people of India tell the BJP that they are out of time so that efficient parties can take over.
