Ghaziabad: Criticising Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his failure to check inflation, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday said his party’s fight against inflation would continue.

“I came to see the Congress worker who got injured. The main issue is inflation. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had said that inflation would be decreased, but it is rising. The Congress Party will fight this battle,” Gandhi told the media here.

Gandhi had come to meet party worker Meena Devi, who had suffered burn injuries while setting ablaze an effigy of Prime Minister Modi on June 8.

The party workers were protesting against the Bharatiya Janata Party government’s promises regarding black money, corruption and inflation in the country.
