Inflation at its peak due to wrong economic policies: Akhilesh

Lucknow, June 28 (UNI) Samajwadi Party (SP) president Akhilesh Yadav on Friday said that inflation has reached its peak due to the wrong economic policies of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government.

In a statement issued here, Akhilesh said that the BJP government has completely failed to control inflation. “This government is not concerned about the problems of the public. As soon as the elections are over, the prices of milk, oil have increased. The prices of vegetables and pulses are skyrocketing. It is difficult for the common people to make a living in this era of inflation,” he said.

He said that the truth is that the government has no control over the market. “Pulses have reached Rs 200 per kilogram. Potatoes are available at Rs 40 per kilogram. The increased prices of other vegetables have spoiled the budget of the people. It is difficult for the poor and the middle class to arrange for two meals a day,” he said.

The SP chief said that the public has given a shock to the BJP in the Lok Sabha elections but it has somehow managed to come to power. “The arrogance of the BJP government is still not decreasing. The policies of the BJP are only for the capitalists. It is always looking for ways to fleece the poor and the middle class,” he alleged.

He claimed that at the behest of the BJP government, banks are giving more loans to rich borrowers and waiving off their loans too, while poor farmers are being harassed even for the smallest loans. “Poor farmers are being humiliated and forced to commit suicide,” he alleged.
