Advocate, Congress leader Sudeep Kumar Maroli said that a memory test on the MLA and BJP leaders will tell the truth about Modi’s maladministration and the influence on ordinary people of the price rise. The Congress party which ruled the country for 70 years did not allow petrol prices to cross Rs 70 and diesel prices to exceed Rs 63. But you made them Rs. 89. The anti-people BJP has no moral right to ask Congress what they did, he said.
