By raising the issue of who will be the chairperson of the UPA, an attempt is being made to dilute the unity of the opposition parties against the BJP." The Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha also added that they will raise the issue of price hikes in petrol and diesel as well as the rising inflation in Parliament.Kharge said, "Congress and other opposition parties will raise the issue of increase in the price of petrol and diesel, including inflation in both the Houses of Parliament." He added, "The central government is looting the money of the poor by increasing the prices of petrol and diesel by more than eight rupees in 10 days. Moreover, the government has also reduced the subsidy on fertilizers, due to which inflation will increase further." Earlier, the Nationalist Congress Party chief Sharad Pawar had stated that he is not at all interested in leading the anti-BJP bloc. Sharad Pawar had further added that he will work to bring parties together to strengthen the bloc.
