Assam Jatiya Parishad (AJP) a regional political group criticized the government on Sunday for neglecting ordinary people’s concerns by failing to take action to rein in spiraling costs of kitchen basics amid the present epidemic.
While addressing a news conference at the party’s headquarters in the city, vice-president Dulu Ahmed questioned the government’s “stoic” silence on the topic of price increases.
“The price of mustard oil has surpassed the two-hundred-year barrier. Pulses prices have surpassed a hundred thresholds. How can ordinary people live at a time when they have lost income sources and the state is subject to stringent limitations, including curfews, as a result of the pandemic’s second wave?” he said.
