Rising inflation fallout of UPA legacy, says home minister
Union home minister and BJP president Rajnath Singh on Saturday said that rising inflation was a fallout of the policy paralysis that prevailed during the Congress-led UPA regime and added that nascent Narendra Modi government will need time to rein in the price rise.

‘The failures of Congress-led UPA government, the kind of policy paralysis prevailing at that time, will have its impact in the country. We are trying to neutralise it and also making efforts to check inflation,’ Rajnath told reporters here.

The home minister was addressing reporters after inaugurating Madhya Pradesh BJP’s two-day training session for newly-elected MPs and MLAs.

‘The country is facing a host of problems and this government has started functioning from last 15 days only. We need some time to overcome them,’ he said. Replying to a query on hike in the rail fare, Rajnath said that it was the decision of the erstwhile UPA government. ‘I want to assure people of the country that this government, under the leadership of prime minister Narendra Modi, will not only ensure that it emerges strong on economic front, but also in other areas,’ Rajnath said.
