Who will guard the guards ?

Do these two political parties represent me ?

On Petrol price hike -

BJP's point of view (21-June-2005)

BJP announces week-long stir against petro price hike:

" The BJP decided to launch the agitation at a meeting of senior office bearers chaired by party President L K Advani, Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu told reporters"
Lashing out at the UPA government, the BJP leader said the 'big' increase in the prices of petrol and diesel will have a cascading effect and costs of all items will rise."

Congress point of view (1-Oct-2000)

"Pondicherry Chief Minister P. Shanmugham today criticised the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre for hiking the prices of petroleum products.

The ‘exhorbitant’ increase effected in the prices of cooking gas, petrol and other products showed that the Centre was following anti-people policies, he told a meeting of Congress workers here.

Asserting that his government was “going strong”, he said only the Congress “could provide” a stable administration. It was going ahead with finalising welfare measures for the people and a package would be announced soon, he added."
