The Lok Sabha was adjourned for half an hour after leaders from Maharashtra and Karnataka gathered near Speaker Meira Kumar’s podium over the disputed district of Belgaum.Ministers like Sharad Pawar, P Chidambaram, were absent in parliament. Leader of Opposition in the Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj started her scathing attack on the government over the price rise and fuel hike issues, accusing it of having “betrayed the common man”.
“The government is not sensitive to the cause of the common man. Everybody in society is lamenting that they are being hit hard by price rise,” Swaraj said. “The common man is starved. His income is not increasing. But his expenditure is high, because of the rising prices of food articles and petroleum products. The government has betrayed the common man.”
She also attacked the government for “mishandling” storage of food grains.
“Lakhs and lakhs of tonnes of wheat are rotting in Food Corporation of India (FCI) godowns, while the states are seeking more and more food grains,” the BJP leader said.
Lakhs of our brethren are starving and dying of hunger since they are not able to afford two square meals a day but ironically several lakh tonnes of food grains are rotting in the unprotected godowns of the Food Corporation of India.”
The commom man is suffering and the Ministers are busy in having lunch. Members of BJP, SWP, and other were not present which showed that how insensitive is our Government.
Government only knows how to earn money and put burden on common man’s shoulder. When they are asked reason’s they are invisible.
