Household savings are up by Rs 2k: Shah

Rejecting the Congress’ charge that the NDA government has failed to control inflation, BJP chief Amit Shah on Friday countered by saying that since the time Narendra Modi assumed the post of the prime minister, an average Indian household is managing to save Rs 1,500 to Rs 2,000 per month.

“When the government came to power, our main concern was to control inflation…Let me inform you that since the last seven months, petrol and diesel prices has be brought down nine times and because of this an average Indian household is able to save Rs 1,500 to Rs 2,000 per month,” Shah told a news conference after presiding over a meeting of Maharashtra unit of the BJP. Shah said inflation that stood at 7 per cent during the UPA regime has become zero in the last six months of NDA dispensation.
