HIKE OF FUEL PRICES: CONGRESS VS BJP BATTLE CONTINUES Featured

(1 Vote)

Battle of words between Congress Party and the ruling BJP Government over the hike of prices of petrol and diesel continues unabated. Spokesperson of Manipur Pradesh Congress Committee, N. Bupenda has refuted the recent allegations by Spokespersons of BJP Manipur Pradesh which blamed the Congress Party of incurring debts amounting  8 Thousand, 807 Crore Rupees during its 15 years of rule which allegedly led to the current hike in prices of fuel.

In a video released by the MPCC today, MPCC Spokesperson N. Bupenda criticised the BJP Government of giving unfounded, momentary and presumptuous statements to appease the public and hide its faults. He further criticised the BJP government of giving confusing and conflicting reasons behind the spike in prices of petrol and diesel. He recalled that Chief Minister N Biren had mentioned that fuel prices were hiked to gather funds for providing rice, covid vaccination and medical equipments for free to the citizens while some BJP Spokespersons had stated that fuels prices have been hiked to generate revenue to be utilised for payments of interests incurred on money borrowed by the Congress party during its tenure. Bupenda also said that Congress Government is not responsible for the debts amount as some debts were already in existence before 1999, that is before the Congress party came to power. He maintained that it is normal for ruling State governments to borrow funds from the Centre as per requirement from time to time. N. Bupenda pointed out that even the existing BJP led State Government has borrowed over 6 thousand crore rupees from the Centre as per CAG report.

The MPCC Spokesperson further refuted BJP Spokespersons who had claimed that Congress Government did not bring any significant changes in health sector of Manipur. N. Bupenda pointed out that it was during the Congress Government's tenure that the JNIMS Medical College got established and RIMS got Centre recognition status, apart from opening various District Hospitals and Health Care Centres in hill regions of the state. Regarding the allegation by BJP about mass recruitment in government departments just before the exit of the Congress Government, N. Bupenda said that the then Congress Government carried out recruitment as per the need in various Government departments by adhering to recruitment rules.

N. Bupenda demanded BJP to stop spreading propaganda to mislead the public and tarnish the image of the Congress party, instead to focus on taking some real, serious and genuine works for the welfare of the public during its 5 years tenure which is almost ending.
