The Congress today claimed that the LPG prices have been doubled in the 7 years of the Modi government.
The prices of the non-subsidised domestic gas cylinders have been hiked again with effect from today. This is the third hike in around last two months. On July 1, the price was increased by Rs 25 and the second hike came on August 17 by Rs 25. The LPG prices were hiked by Rs 25 today again taking it to Rs 884.50 per cylinder of 14.2kg. The Congress today claimed that the LPG prices have been doubled in the 7 years of the Modi government.
“1st March, 2014 = Price of gas cylinder Rs 410! September 1, 2021 = price of gas cylinder Rs 884! More than double the price in 7 years. This is Modiji’s promise of ‘Acche Din’. It’s only good days for BJP while the common man’s budget days are being looted,” said Congress spokesperson
Randeep Singh Surjewala.

Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi also slammed the Modi government for the LPG price hike. “Prime Minister, there are only two types of ‘development’ taking place under your rule: On one hand, the income of your billionaire friends is increasing. On the other hand, the prices of essential commodities are increasing for the common people. If this is ‘development (Vikas), then the time has come to send this ‘vikas’ on ‘avkash’ (leave),” said Priyanka.
आपके राज में दो ही तरह का "विकास" हो रहा है:
एक तरफ आपके खरबपति मित्रों की आय बढ़ती जा रही है।
दूसरी तरफ आमजनों के लिए आवश्यक वस्तुओं के दाम बढ़ते जा रहे हैं।
