BHOPAL: Inflation is a global phenomenon and it is because of the global forces that the prices are rising in India also, said BJP Member of Parliament, Virendra Khatik on Friday. He was talking to media persons before starting the Jan Ashriwad Yatra in Bhopal.
Union minister Khatik evaded questions on inflation, unemployment and the situation created by Covid. He said that the behavior of Opposition in the Parliament was very irresponsible. “This is the reason why central leadership has sent the ministers among the public and to tell them about their irresponsible behavior in the Parliament,” said the Union minister.
Replying to a question, Khatik said that the Congress is anti-OBC (Other Backward Class). Congress did not implement the Mandal commissions’ recommendations. Modi government took special care of the OBCs and is working towards their upliftment.
