Hubali: Lambasting the Union government for the escalating fuel prices, Food and Civil Supplies Minister B.Z. Zameer Ahmed Khan has sought to know from Prime Minister Narendra Modi whether these were the achhe din that he had promised.

Speaking to presspersons in Hubballi on Wednesday, the Minister sought to know why the Union government was sitting quiet even as prices of petroleum products were on the rise. “We don’t need Modiji’s Mann Ki Baat, we need ‘kaam ki baat.”

He said the party had been fighting against rise in fuel prices since long. “We are waiting for the people to understand what sort of governance is being given by the Union government, which has led to hike in prices of petroleum products.”

Taking a dig at former Chief Minister B.S.Yeddyurappa who has been predicting fall of the coalition government, Mr. Zameer Ahmed said the coalition government would last for five years.

He further added that H.D. Kumaraswsmy would be Chief Minister for the full term and all the programmes announced during former Chief Minister Siddaramaiah’s tenure would continue.
