Price rise: Is the UPA govt to blame?

April 25, 2008 09:09 IST

The BJP-led National Democratic Alliance on Thursday formed a human chain in Parliament complex to protest price rise while its leader L K Advani asked the government to quit and go for elections if it was unable to control inflation.

Alleging that the government had 'failed' on the issue, Advani joined NDA members, including leaders like Rajnath Singh, George Fernandes and Manohar Joshi, in forming the chain.

Both the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha were adjourned for two hours on Thursday as an agitated Opposition demanded the government to quit.
