Mumbai, Oct 22 (IANS) Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray on Thursday attacked his ally the BJP over rising food prices and warned that governments can fall because of unchecked price rise.
Addressing the Dassehra rally at Shivaji Park here, Thackeray demanded to know why the runaway inflation could not be controlled and why prices of onions and pulses cannot be checked.
“We are not able to face the people because of this inflation,” said Thackeray, whose Shiv Sena is a junior ally of the Bharatiya Janata Party in Maharashtra.
“They (BJP) must remember that governments have fallen because of price rise. Any more price rise, the government can be in danger,” he said.
Referring to a TV debate on cows, Thackeray demanded to know why debates were not taking place on inflation.
