Chandigarh March 17, 2009 : The NDA candidate for Chandigarh Parliamentary constituency Mr Satya Pal Jain has held Congress Party responsible for the back-breaking price rise in the last five years. He was addressing a massive convention of party workers in Manimajra on Monday.
Mr Jain said whenever Congress Party has come to power in the centre, prices of articles of daily use have sky-rocketed so much that these have gone out of reach of the common man. Recalling that Congress Party had come to power after promising that “Congress hand will be with the aam admi” but actually the aam admi is the worst sufferer of Congress Party rule. He said it is because of the anti people policies of Congress Party that even kerosene oil is not available to the poor man. He promised that on coming to power BJP Government will restore the 30 liter monthly quota system.
Mr Jain said Congress Party has done nothing for development of Manimajra; in fact under the Congress rule the residences of poor people have been demolished. On assuming power in Delhi NDA government will develop Manimajra on the pattern of Chandigarh and alterations made by residents in their houses to meet their needs will be approved. Attacking Congress Party Jain said the Congress UPA government has failed on all fronts and the infighting within Congress Party coupled with their running battles with the officers of administration has put development of Chandigarh on hold.
