New Delhi, Sep 10 : Senior Bharatiya Janata Party  leader Subramanian Swamy said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi must act to  reduce the prices of petrol and diesel  as hike in petrol prices can force people to  revolt against the government.

“I feel that the macroeconomic price for petrol is Rs 40 and somehow the PM Narendra Modi  must ask the Petroleum Minister to think as a part of Economic Affairs Ministry& not as Petroleum minister and stop setting prices so high that people can go to the point of revolt,”Subramanian Swamy said.

“When crude oil price rises the price of fuel must be raised is microeconomis and I am not in favour of microeconomics as it involves only two persons (buyer and seller) but here the whole economy is involved so it is a macro economics,” he added.

Congress and Left Front have separately called nationwide ‘Bharat bandh’ to protest against soaring fuel prices and weak rupee.A united Opposition, led by Congress President Rahul Gandhi, on Monday staged a foot march here in support of a nationwide shutdown protest or ‘Bharat Bandh.

The Congress President paid tributes to Mahatma Gandhi at his memorial at Rajghat.

Vikas Dubey.

New Delhi, July 10 (IANS) The Congress on Friday demanded a time-bound inquiry by a sitting Supreme Court Judge into the encounter killing of gangster Vikas Dubey near Kanpur earlier in the day “to expose those who gave protection to the criminal”.

“To expose the people behind Vikas Dubey will be the only justice to eight martyred policemen. It is a litmus test for Union Home Minister Amit Shah and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath,” Congress Chief Spokesperson Randeep Surjewala told a press conference and raised a number of questions over the alleged encounter.

Surjewala claimed that the state was witnessing an unholy nexus between police and criminals. “When Dubey had surrendered (in Ujjain on Thursday), why would he try to run away? Who stopped the media vehicles just a few km from the spot of the encounter?” the Congress leader questioned.

The party alleged that Dubey was “just a pawn in the organised crime syndicate in Uttar Pradesh and the Chief Minister should tell the public who the head of this syndicate was.

The Congress leader further asked how the criminal reached Ujjain in Madhya Pradesh without any hindrance, and what all secrets he knew which could reveal the nexus of criminals and politicians.

“Why was Dubey”s name was missing from the list of top 25 criminals in UP?”

The Congress leader said that even though a chartered plane was sent to Madhya Pradesh, he was brought back by road by police and how could he end up in a TUV when he was last seen seated in a Tata Safari SUV.

Surjewala further asked how could the gangster be hit in the chest if he was trying to flee. “Also, there were no skid marks on the road at the spot where the vehicle overturned. All these circumstances raise questions,” he added.
