Rajasthan Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Minister Rajkumar Rinwa on Monday, blamed the common people for rising fuel prices.
Instead of accepting the Modi government’s responsibility to curb inflation, Rinwa hit out at the common man. He said, “Public doesn’t understand that if the prices are rising, they should just reduce consumption to fight inflation,” reported News18.
As If blaming the citizens for inflation was not enough, the BJP minister attacked them further by saying, “Indian public has no national character like people in other nations.”
