The NDA government at the Centre is exploring a long-term policy to bring down the prices of fuel, said BJP’s national spokesperson Sambit Patra on Saturday.
Talking to media persons here, he said the BJP-led government is sensitive to the issue.
He said Union Minister of Petroleum and Natural Gas Dharmendra Pradhan has provided detailed information on the reasons for the increase in prices and what possibilities could be explored to bring down the prices.
Patra is in Shimla as a part of the BJP’s ongoing campaign from 27 May to 30 June to take the performance of the Modi government to the masses on completion of four years of rule.
Talking about the political scenario in the country, Patra said that at the moment BJP was not planning to form an alliance with anybody. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had stated that the formation of an alliance will be done in accordance to the situation in the country, he added.
He charged that as far as opposition is concerned they are more bothered about an alliance of aspirations, where they place themselves ahead of anything else, whereas BJP is concerned about how to take the country forward and make it grow.
The agenda of the Modi government is to meet the aspirations of the 125 crore people of the country, Patra said, adding that the public is intelligent and will defeat the Congress in the ensuing elections.
