'Centre doesn't want to discuss fuel price rise': Shashi Tharoor slams

New Delhi/IBNS: Senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor on Thursday accused the Centre of driving away from the focus on fuel price rise and consumer inflation.

He said though Lok Sabha passed a bill on Weapons of Mass Destruction, the government's real strength is its "weapons of mass distraction".

"Though LS passed a Bill on Weapons of Mass Destruction, GOI's real strength is its Weapons of Mass Distraction. Aided & abetted by a complicit media, pointless controversies over halal, hijab & azaan have driven away the focus from #pricerise," he tweeted.

He said the government should have encouraged a serious debate on fuel rise instead of adjourning Parliament two days early.

"Instead of adjourning Parliament two days early, the government should have had the courage to listen to a serious debate on fuel price rise & consumer inflation. It's clear that GOI doesn't want to discuss prices at any price!" he wrote.

The Budget Session of Parliament concluded on Thursday, a day ahead of schedule.

This comes as the oppositions have cornered the Centre over the constant hike in fuel price.
