New Delhi: The Congress on Tuesday said the government had failed to check rising prices, causing serious problems to people.
“The government has failed to control prices of essential commodities. Outgoing RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan could not propose any cut in repo rate. This shows his lack of faith in the government measures to deal with inflation,” Congress MP M.V. Rajeev Gowda told the media here.
Taking a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, he said Modi was busy giving slogans on each and every issue but nothing had changed on the ground.
“The Congress demands that the government take measures to curb shooting prices,” he said.
The MP said had the government shared the benefits of tumbling oil prices in the international market with the people, a lot of relief could have ensured to them.
Gowda said Rajan should keep his bags ready as the Congress would like to use his services when it forms the next government at the Centre.
