Mangaluru, Sep 15, 2018: The Union Government which is pro-capitalists has failed to understand the plight of the common man who is reeling under problems due to fuel price hike, alleged senior Congress leader and former minister B Ramanatha Rai.
Addressing press persons at the party office here on September 8, Saturday he urged all organisations as well as the public to join hands with the Congress and support the Bharat Bundh call given by the party on Sept 10 to protest against fuel price hike.
He said the Union Government was giving several excuses for not being able to reduce fuel prices. Recalling how Narendra Modi rose to power by blaming the Congress for inflation and by promising Achhe Din where fuel prices will be low and rupee value will be high against dollar. The people have now realised that all assurances were false, he added.
Rai informed that a protest will also be organised by the Congress from Shanthi Nilaya, Balmatta upto the DC office on September 11 to condemn the Rafale scam.
Former MLAs Moidin Bava, JR Lobo, MLC Ivan D’Souza, former mayors Kavitha Sanil, Shashidhar Hegde, senior leader Ibrahim Kodijal and others were present.
