Mangaluru, Feb 16, 2020: Condemning the rise in the price of LPG cylinders and anti-Dalit policy of the Central government, District Congress Committee staged a protest in front of taluk panchayat building in Mangaluru on Saturday. The protesters prepared coffee using firewood.
Addressing the protesters, DCC President Harish Kumar said that price rise has affected the common man. The economic slowdown in the country has affected industries and employment in the country.
Those who raise their voice against the policies of the government are booked under the Sedition Act, he said.
MLC Ivan D’Souza said the price of LPG cylinders has been increased by
Rs 145 all of a sudden. Owing to the wrong policies of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah, the country is facing distress. The banks are bankrupt.
Former minister Abhayachandra Jain said, “The Centre had promised to double
the income of farmers. However, now they are neglecting
the farmers and poor labourers. The rise in the price of petrol and diesel will have an impact on the essential commodities.”
