Comparing the current situation with the Emergency of the 70s, Rudy said, "The situation now is volatile on price rise, black money, corruption, land issues and several other burning problems. The common man is fed up."

"The UPA government has failed to control prices of essential commodities which have increased the rates of petrol, diesel and allied products, pushing inflation further up."

Holding UPA government's partners also responsible for the situation, he said, "The allies have aired their discontent at the increasing price of goods and inflation. The allies are feeling the pinch of wrong governance."

Due to the government ignoring the protests raised by the BJP both inside and outside the Parliament, he said, social activists had to step into fight corruption and price rise.

Referring to the Lokpal Bill, the BJP leader claimed that the government initially ignored Opposition parties when drafting the bill, but had to turn to them in the face of a stalemate.

"The BJP will give its opinion on the Bill, but we must first be provided with the draft," he said.

He also said that the BJP would continue its nationwide campaign against price rise and corruption.
