"Will an increase in railway fare bring down inflation? Will an increase in freight charges, that will in turn increase prices of essential commodities, bring good days?" asked the former union minister.
Jaiswal was leading a protest organized by Congress against hike in railway fare and freight charges and unannounced power cuts in the city.
"The railway fare has been increased so much in just one go. Never before has the fare been increased so much. Even the freight charges have been increased. This will directly affect the people as the prices of daily-use commodities will increase," he said.
"Did the people elect the BJP to see such 'good days’? It is being said that the prices of gas and fuel will also increase. The people should think why they elected BJP," he said.
Jaiswal lost the Lok Sabha election from Kanpur to BJP's Murli Manohar Joshi.
