A senior Congress leader today termed the BJP's 'maha rally' against price rise as a "show organised by black marketeers and hoarders".
"BJP has mobilised 6,000 buses and 30 special trains to organise the rally against the price rise. The whole show is being organised by the black marketeers and hoarders who are solidly behind the BJP," alleged Uttar Pradesh Congress leader Jagdambika Pal.
BJP today staged a rally in the national capital to protest the spiralling prices of essential commodities.
The rally has badly disrupted traffic in the city, Pal said.
Blaming the state governments for the price rise situation, Pal said, "The state governments have a direct role in controlling the price. The Centre has taken all possible steps in the matter."
There is a need to strengthen the public distribution system in states, he said.
