STATE TIMES NEWSJAMMU: Former Minister J&K and Senior Congress leader Yogesh Sawhney on Wednesday slammed Union Government for surging prices of essential commodities during time of pandemic. He said that the pandemic was a test of the leadership of country but Modi Government miserably failed. “Prices of essential goods such as fuel and edible oil among others have drastically affected public which is already suffering a lot due to second wave of virus and consequent lockdown. In fact, the prices of edible oil have surged to their highest levels in over a decade and those of fuel are likewise hard-hitting on pockets of common man,” he added.Speaking further, Sawhney said that India is being misgoverned and mismanaged. The retail prices of edible oils have risen over 62 per cent in over a year, causing hardships for consumers already reeling under economic distress induced by COVID-19. Further, the high prices of diesel and petrol are adding to woes of suffering people. “Despite plethora of issues, people of Jammu and Kashmir have no forum or platform to convey their grievances regarding all these issues. Since the abrogation of Statehood, there has been no public representation for J&K. The few, who are supposedly there to represent J&K, are sitting in their Delhi offices without caring for J&K people. It is a hopeless situation for Union Territory that there is no elected leadership to bridge the gap between public and the government offices,” he added.
