Mumbai: Attacking BJP over the increasing prices of commodities, Congress General secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said that everything is expensive under Modi’s government.
“In Modi Ji’s rule, there is nothing left that hasn’t been made expensive. Those who gave the slogan ‘Bahut hui mehngai ki maar’ are now attacking the public every day with price rise and inflation,” she said in a tweet in Hindi.
मोदी जी के राज में
ऐसा कुछ भी बचा नहीं, जिसको महंगा किया नहीं
आटा महंगा, मोबाइल का डाटा महंगा
जीवन बीमा महंगा, जीवन जीना महंगा
कपड़े महंगे, जूते महंगे, महंगी सब्जी-दाल
"बहुत हुई महंगाई की मार" का नारा देने वाले अब हर रोज जनता पर महंगाई का प्रहार कर रहे हैं। pic.twitter.com/ktIGsUvGvF

Taking a jibe at BJP’s slogan of ‘Achche din’, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, raised the issue of GST, and said, “Increase in GST by 140 per cent, the expose of ‘Achche din’ continues.”
Meanwhile, Congress spokesperson Pawan Khera said the government keeps trying to distract the attention of the people of the country from real issues to non-issues.
“It appears as though there is Section 144 in the kitchen that you cannot keep more than four tomatoes or onions,” Khera quoted by PTI.
“We would not allow the collective attention of the country to be hijacked by this government by creating non-issues by hiding their failures,” he added.
Alleging that country was paying the price for PM Modi’s mistakes, Khera asked, “The 7.5 years of Mr Modi have been a long chain of mistakes, some acknowledged, and some realised and some not. Why should the country pay the price for this series of these mistakes of Mr Modi.”
He also said that as a responsible opposition, the Congress party would not allow the country to be distracted and bring back the focus on the everyday problems faced by the common person.
Khera said the BJP government had realised some of its mistakes after the recently concluded by-elections and “will realise them more in the next round of assembly elections.”
The prices of vegetables have reached a new height with above Rs.100 per KG. This hike comes as the southern states are facing heavy non-seasonal rainfalls and floods, destroying crops. The diesel price hike is further augmenting the prices.
