"The weak financial management and shortsightedness on the decisions on economic affairs by the UPA government led by Manmohan Singh led to skyrocketing prices of essential commodities," Modi said in a press statement.
"Bihar's NDA Government has tried to control the situation by way of reducing sale taxes on petroleum products," Modi said.
Highlighting the measures taken by the state government to help people of the state cope up with the situation, Modi said the state government decided to cut VAT on LPG cylinders by three per cent making them cheaper by Rs ten.
