Mohali: Congress candidate from Mohali assembly seat Balbir Sidhu has termed the state government recommendation to Central government to end kerosene oil quota as an anti-poor. The SAD-BJP government real face of anti-poor has again come to fore while seeking cancelling of poor people kerosene quota.
Sidhu was speaking at a meeting of party leaders and workers from Mohali district at Sector 71 here on Monday night which was convened by Dilbag Singh Dhindsa.
Sidhu criticised the central government for increasing fuel prices. “The common public which is already facing the great hardship due to demonetization, will be adversely affected by the fuel price hike,” he said.
He said further that instead to work for bringing ‘acche din’ for country people, Modi government has added to their woes by announcing fuel prices hike on the first day of a new year. The poor are going to suffer more with this as they are already facing problem to make their both ends meet after demonetisation has badly affected their daily earnings. DP
