Launching a scathing attack on the UPA regime over the continuous price rise, the BJP has demanded clarification from Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and AICC chief Sonia Gandhi.

Addressing a press conference, state BJP general secretary Dr. Rajeev Bindal ridiculed the unsavory comments made by Union Minister Beni Prasad that he was happy that prices rise, and asked both the PM and the Congress chief to clarify the stand of their government.

Bindal said that the Union minister has virtually made mockery of the plight of the poor and added that such comments had clearly exposed the Congress party as it was pursuing an agenda of increasing prices in a planned manner. He blamed that the UPA is leaderless and directionless and has pushed India 15 years back. Bindal said the prices had skyrocketed and the Centre had failed to come up with any concrete step to bring it under control.

Rajeev Bindal also condemned its inability over the internal security issue and said it was unfortunate that the UPA regime was blaming Pakistan for mass migration within the country. He alleged that the UPA regime has made country helpless over the security issues before its hostile neighbors and warned that if such situation prevail, security condition can worsen in the coming time.
