"We are going to make sure prices are lowered. Leave it to the Prime Minister," he said here while interacting with the Congress members in Tamil Nadu.

Asserting that the price line would be contained soon, the Congress leader, Mr Rahul Gandhi, on Wednesday said that the Prime Minister would fix the problem.

"We are going to make sure prices are lowered. Leave it to the Prime Minister," he said here while interacting with the Congress members in Tamil Nadu.

In response to Mr Gandhi's advice to party members to work more at the panchayat level and be close to the people, one of them told him that people were bothered by the price rise, including the skyrocketing prices of onion, and said they were asking the Congressmen what steps are being taken to control the price rise.

"The Prime Minister will fix the problem.... You don't worry about it. You worry about working at the panchayat level," he advised the party worker.

Earlier, in his address to the newly elected youth Congress members in Tamil Nadu, Mr Gandhi asked them to 'slowly and systematically' work to build the party and bring it back to where it once belonged.

He said that if youth Congress members worked hard and ensured that the party, which has been out of power for nearly three decades grew into a strong one, a day will come when one from this group can become the chief minister.

However, he hastened to add that there were senior Congress leaders who could reach the top post.
