LUCKNOW: BSP president Mayawati on Wednesday flayed the BJP government for the rise in LPG price, saying it will only benefit the rich.
“Instead of extending relief to the poor, the BJP government is only concerned about the wealthy for whose benefit the prices of petroleum products are being constantly hiked,” Mayawati said in a press release here, reports PTI.
Describing the price hike as an anti-people move, the BSP chief said, “People who had been troubled by rising petrol and diesel prices now have been further burdened with a hike in LPG price. This will adversely hit the poor and common people.”
Referring to the recent incident of a temple being cleaned with ‘ganga jal’ after a woman MLA visited it, and the report of a Dalit female officer being denied water, Mayawati alleged that there has been a spurt in number of such cases.
