New Delhi: Inflation continues to hit the people. Today itself, the price of non-subsidized cylinder was increased by Rs 25. In such a situation, now the price of a 14.2 kg cylinder in Delhi has increased from Rs 809 to Rs 834.50.
The opposition is attacking the Modi government regarding this. Congress leader Rahul Gandhi wrote on Twitter with #LPGPriceHike, “Modi Maya has such an impact, it is just a matter of rhetoric that has fallen.”

Party spokesperson Supriya Shrinet claimed that the price of LPG has been increased by Rs 240 in the last few months. Taking a jibe at the BJP, he said, “When prices rise, I remember Modi’s slogan ‘Bahu hui dearness ki maar…’. We want to tell the government that there has been a lot of inflation, just do it Modi government.
The Congress spokesperson alleged, “This government is increasing the prices of petrol, diesel and LPG at a time when the people of the country are in serious trouble. This shows the apathy of the government.
Supriya asked whether people from poor families who got free cylinders under the Ujjwala scheme can buy cooking gas for Rs 834?
