PANAJI: Goa Women Forward condemns the statement of BJP Mahila Morcha Incharge Sulakshana Sawant over her remarks on the gas cylinder price hike.
“If international crude prices have increased, how come Chief Minister Pramod Sawant is flying in a private jet to Kolhapur, Solapur and Andaman islands,’ said GFP Leader Nimisha Faleiro
She further said that it was a shocking statement made by Sulakshana Sawant wherein she stated that gas prices have increased due to the international price hike.
“We feel that BJP has not done its homework correctly. These statements are purely based on union governments, but if we see the rates, it has decreased by 6 USD,” she added.
They further said that BJP had promised a cylinder in each household, but nothing has been done.
“BJP is fooling the people of Goa,” she added.
She recollected how Union Minister for Women and Child Development Smriti Irani had hit the road with the cylinder on her shoulder when the price of LPG was Rs 410 during the Congress-led government at the Centre.
“Where is Smriti Irani hiding today? Why is she not uttering a word? GFP is concerned and sensitive about people, but this BJP government has no concern for the poor. On the contrary, before elections, they increase prices for everything. They are squeezing the pockets of the people.” she said.
