MARGAO: “Another blow by BJP Government on Common Man. Domestic LPG Cylinders are to cost ₹1117 with today’s price hike of ₹50 per Cylinder. Commercial LPG Cylinders to cost ₹2118 with a hike of ₹350 per Cylinder. Even frying Pakodas will be difficult for educated unemployed youths,” stated Leader of Opposition Yuri Alemao.
Reacting sharply to the price hike on Domestic and Commercial LPG Cylinders by the BJP Government, Leader of Opposition Yuri Alemao slammed the BJP Government for continuously putting a financial burden on the people.
He said this hike would result in the complete collapse of household budgets.
“This is a Financial Emergency imposed by the insensitive BJP Government on the middle class and poor. The increase in Commercial LPG Cylinders will result in an escalation of food items in Restaurants and Food Outlets. It appears that the Government wants to keep people starving,” stated Yuri Alemao.
He added, “I appeal to the Goans to realize the timing of announcing the hike in LPG Cylinder prices. The Elections for Tripura, Meghalaya and Nagaland have just concluded, and the results will be declared on 2nd March 2023. People of these three States were lured with “Jumlas” before the Elections. What they have been given is a price hike. BJP Government is doing it repeatedly and consistently,” charged Yuri Alemao.
Lok Sabha Elections are just a year away. The time has come for the people to realize the Pro-Capitalist and Anti-Poor Agenda of the BJP Government. It is impossible to defeat BJP unless the people express their anger against the Anti-People Policies of the BJP Government, stated Yuri Alemao.
