New Delhi: Senior BJP leaders on Tuesday attacked Delhi government for failing to control the phenomenal rise in prices essential commodities and said its policies and programmes were putting financial burden on the marginalised section of the society.

At a rally in support of Arti Mehra, Leader of the Opposition in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj blamed the Congress government for the phenomenal rise in wholesale and retail prices of food grains, vegetables and fruits.

Swaraj also alleged that several ministers in the state were involved in many scams including the CWG scam.

Recalling the gruesome December 16 gang-rape incident, she said the state government was not serious on the issue.

At another rally, Leader of the Opposition in Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitely also attacked Sheila Dikshit government and termed it as "most corrupt".

Addressing a rally in Badarpur Assembly constituency in support of party candidate Ramvir Singh Bidhuri, he said Dikshit government was totally "anti-poor and its policies and programmes had put financial burden on the poor and marginalised section of the society."

Jaitely alleged that the government had hiked power tariff in connivance with private companies, putting huge financial burden on the common man.
