New Delhi, Sep 13 : People are bothered by inflation while Prime Minister Narendra Modi is ignoring their pain, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said on Tuesday.
In a tweet in Hindi on the sixth day of his Bharat Jodi Yatra, the Congress leader said: “Inflation. Everywhere I’m going people are worried about it. The Prime Minister is intentionally ignoring people’s pain.”
India’s retail inflation measured by the consumer price index (CPI) surged to 7 per cent in August due to higher food prices, compared to 6.71 per cent in July.
The Yatra was launched at Kanyakumari on September 7. It will cover 3,500 km, crossing 12 states and two union territories, over a period of five to six months.
