He listed out various commodities whose prices have risen in the three years of which made life difficult for the common man.

"My 7th question to the prime minister. People were hit by unkept jumlas, noteban's loot and that took away all the earnings. The rest was taken away by rising prices.

"Living has become difficult due to rising prices. Is only for the rich?," he asked.

He also tweeted a diagrammatic picture of a comparative chart of prices of commodities in 2014 and 2017, illustrating their rise.

Gandhi has been posing questions to the prime minister using tagline "22 salon ka hisaab, Gujarat mange jawaab (Gujarat demands answers for 22 years of rule)" in the run up to the Gujarat Assembly elections.

He has been demanding answers from him for "unfulfilled promises" made by his party.
