Mangalore: BJP President Nitin Gadkari on Sunday
slammed the Union government by alleging that its economic
policies were anti-poor and the administrative system was
responsible for the hike of petrol prices and other essential
commodities.

"The Government has done nothing to control price hike
and it is the third time that the petrol prices have been
hiked," he told reporters here.

The BJP would step up protests if the prices were not
controlled, he said.
