Oppn trying to worsen atmosphere: Adityanath on price rise 26.5.2018 General News
Attacking rival political parties, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath today said that "opposition is unnecessarily trying to worsen the atmosphere" over price rise. Speaking to reporters, Aditynath said the fearful picture which the opposition is painting, actually does not exist. "The Centre is alert as far as price rise is concerned. The prices of the essential commodities have been controlled. The opposition is unnecessarily trying to worsen the atmosphere," he said. On a question about garlanding the statue of Chhtrapati Shivaji in Mumbai while allegedly wearing a khadau (wooden slippers), Adityanath said, "I know how garlanding of a statue has to be done. In this context, no one should advise me." Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray had earlier accused Adityanath of garlanding the statue of Shivaji while wearing wooden slippers.
