Kolkata: The government has ordered state-run oil companies to raise subsidised cooking gas (LPG) prices by Rs 4 per cylinder every month after that West Bengal CM Mamata bursts into anger and twitted.
“I am really concerned about the commoner. Earlier, subsidy was withdrawn on LPG and now again. BJP does not care about the people. They only care about money. How can the BJP not carry out their social obligation? Where is their commitment to society at large? The BJP makes public commitments and then deviates from all”.
