Siddaramaiah slams Prime Minister Modi on Petroleum price hike

Bengaluru, Jun 30 (UNI) Former Chief minister and Opposition Congress leader in the Karnataka Assembly Siddaramaiah, has slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the unabated hike of the petroleum prices.
Addressing a protest gathering, organized by the Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC), against the increase of Petrol and Diesel prices by the Union government here on Monday, the Congress leader had dubbed Prime Minister Narendra Modi as 'heartless'.
Stating that during the UPA government at the Center, the BJP leaders raised hue and cry over whenever Petroleum prices were hiked, the Congress leader while questioning them had wondered 'where are they now'.
Informing that the Union government is hiking the petroleum product prices, continuously for the last twenty days, without paying any regards to the plights of the people of the country, who were already battered by the COVID-19 scare, and jobless, he said that “those who are running the government at the Center have no concerns for the people”.
KPCC president D K Shivakumar, Rajya sabha member Mallikarjuna Kharge, KPCC working president Ishwar Khandre and others were also present on the occasion.
Earlier the Congress leaders had taken out a bicycle rally to protest the hike on Petrol and Diesel price.
