Kolkata, July 31 (IANS) West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday slammed the BJP for the hike in the price of subsidised cooking gas by Rs 4 per cylinder every month, accusing the party ruling at the Centre of not caring for the people.
“I am really concerned about the commoners. Earlier, subsidy was withdrawn on LPG and now again. The BJP does not care about the people,” she tweeted.
The Trinamool Congress supremo accused the Bharatiya Janata Party of making public commitments and then going back on them.
“They only care about money. How can the BJP not carry out their social obligations? Where is their commitment to society at large? The BJP makes public commitments and then deviates from all,” she said.
The Centre on Monday ordered state-run oil companies to raise subsidised cooking gas price by Rs 4 per cylinder every month to eliminate all subsidies by March next year.
