Patna: Senior BJP leader Rajnath Singh on Saturday
asked the Centre to explain what were the steps taken by it to
neutralise and lessen price rise.
"I would like the Centre to explain what steps it had
initiated to neutralise and lessen price rise as it claims to
have identified the reasons behind the skyrocketing prices of
commodities," Singh told reporters here.



"It is unfortunate that on one hand the Centre claims to
have identified the reasons behind price rise... but has
failed to do anything to bring it under control," he said.
"The tendency of prices increasing day by day is
continuing but the government has not assured us, as to when
it will be in a position to control the situation," Singh
alleged.



It had become essential that there should be "an
effective system" to control the price rise, Singh pointed out
and demanded that the Centre urgently set up Price
Stabilisation Fund or launch Price Stabilisation Policy to
neutralise the effects and control price rise.
