"Why BJP and its prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi are silent over the gas pricing issue involving RIL," AAP's national executive member Yogendra Yadav said at the party's first-ever public meeting in the state.

The AAP leader, who visited the city after the recent visits of Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi and Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, was critical of both the parties and urged people to choose honest and good candidates in the Lok Sabha polls.

“While the Congress allowed the RIL to loot the common man of the country by raising the gas price, the BJP preferred to remain silent because of some unknown reason,” Yadav alleged.

“The UPA government shifted S Jaipal Reddy from the Ministry of Petroleum after he dared to impose penalty on RIL,” Yadav said.

“The new Minister Veerappa Moily did not take any step to realise the penalty amount,” the AAP leader said.

The amount of scam in gas pricing could be to the tune of Rs 50,000 crore, Yadav said.
