Prices are unlikely to fall unless PM steps down: Karti Chidambaram

Prices are unlikely to fall unless PM steps down: Karti Chidambaram

Sivagangai MP Karti Chidambaram has on Wednesday commented that the price hike in India is unlikely to drop as long as the Prime Minister and Home Minister are in charge.

Arriving by plane in Coimbatore, Karti Chidambaram met reporters at the airport.  Speaking then, he said, “Equality is essential for India when we look at the events taking place, especially in Karnataka. 

The BJP in the Centre is making every effort to suppress the minorities all over India. In particular, they think of oppressing the Muslim people at every moment, including the Babri Masjid verdict, the Kashmir issue, the talaq issue, and the Citizenship Amendment Act.

As long as the current Union Minister, Finance Minister and the Prime Minister are in power, prices will not go down. If the price of petrol and diesel goes up, the price of all other commodities will go up and the union government will impose an economic burden on the common people.

 Ordinary people find it very difficult to buy essential commodities and the price will not go down unless the tax on petrol and diesel is reduced.

The central government did not reduce prices even though crude oil prices were low. The government has already taken various blows. The central government does not provide any funds to individuals and companies affected by currency devaluation, GST and corona. 

Unable to recover from this, they pushed India into the abyss with the burden of petrol and diesel price hikes. There has been a call for the abolition of the 10 percent import tax on cotton prices.

At a time when various problems are going on all over the world at present, instead of engaging in activities like tax reduction, they are engaged in activities such as cultivating Hindutva.” Thus he said.
