altJPNN|Khajuraho | June 21, 2014| Union Home Minister and BJP President Rajnath Singh Saturday  said that rising inflation was a fallout of the policy paralysis that prevailed during the Congress-led UPA regime and added that nascent Narendra Modi government will need time to rein in the price rise. "The failures of Congress-led UPA government, the kind of policy paralysis prevailing at that time, will have its impact in the country. We are trying to neutralise it and also making efforts to check inflation," Rajnath told reporters. The Home Minister was addressing reporters after inaugurating Madhya Pradesh BJP's two-day training session for newly-elected MPs and MLAs. "The country is facing a host of problems and this

government has started functioning from last 15 days only. We need some time to overcome them," he said. Replying to a query on hike in the rail fare, Rajnath said that it was the decision of the erstwhile UPA government. "I want to assure people of the country that this government, under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, will not only ensure that it emerges strong on economic front, but also in other areas," Rajnath said. The BJP president said that his government's performance cannot be evaluated in just 10-15 days."You cannot evaluate the government's performance in just 10-15 days unless we frame a policy. And a policy cannot be formulated in just 10 days or a month. Media must make people aware on the issue," the Home Minister said. The wholesale price inflation (WPI) accelerated in May at the quickest pace since December, led by an increase in prices of potatoes, fruits, egg, meat and fish, prompting the government to unveil anti-inflationary measures earlier this week.

Meanwhile, replying to a query on the Iraq crisis, Rajnath said that all possible efforts are being made to safely evacuate the Indians who are trapped in that country. "The Prime Minister held a meeting yesterday in which the External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and the Home Ministry (officials) were also present," he said. Rajnath said that the people of the country were aware about the crisis in Iraq from where oil is imported. "I want to assure people that there is a difference between the previous Congress government and the current BJP government. BJP is known for providing good government," he said.

The Home Minister also expressed satisfaction over the ongoing probe into the Madhya Pradesh Professional Examination Board (MPPEB) scam. Earlier, addressing the newly-elected MPs and MLAs, the BJP chief asked them to remain committed to their duty and try to fulfil expectations of people. The session was also addressed by the party's National Organisation General Secretary, Ram Lal, and Union Minister for Steel and Mines, Narendra Singh Tomar, who is the state BJP president. Agency

    The controversy around Nestle's Maggi noodles has caused panic throughout the nation and it doesn't look like it will die down any time soon.

    After the initial test results by Uttar Pradesh Department of Food and Drug Administration (FDA) showed harmful levels of monosodium glutamate (MSG) and lead in Maggi, various states across India and even Bangladesh conducted tests on Maggi to find out whether the food product is safe or not.

    The controversy around Maggi has led to tests being conducted across the country.

    The entire controversy began when the UP FDA last month asked Nestle India to withdraw a batch of Maggi noodles "which were manufactured in February 2014" after it found high levels of added MSG, a taste enhancer, in the noodles and lead beyond permissible limits.
