JAMMU, Sept 17: National Conference today took out a protest march against price hike of essentials and fuel, describing the unprecedented situation as manifestation of the anti-people policies being pursued by the BJP led Government at the Centre and previously due to policy paralysis of the PDP-BJP dispensation.
‘House wives are worst hit due to price hike’, State vice president National Conference Women Wing and former MLA Bimla Luthra said while leading the protest march from Sher-e-Kashmir Bhavan here.
Carrying out placards and raising slogans against the soaring prices of essential commodities, the NC workers marched through the Residency Road and historic Raghunath Bazar and staged massive protests at the famous City Chowk.
Luthra urged the Governor SP Malik to take corrective measures for checking the skyrocketing prices of all the essentials. She expressed surprise over soaring fuel prices despite decrease in the price of crude oil in the international market and said that this has not only impacted the mobility of common man but resulted in escalation of prices of all the commodities.
‘Frustrated by the price hike, the people are forced to take to the streets to express their rage and stage protests’, Luthra said, adding that the `Ache Din’ promise of the BJP has proved a cruel joke as the ground realities are haunting the poor people. She said the BJP has failed on all fronts and blamed it for the mess created across the country during the past over four years. The other speakers also castigated the BJP for pushing people to wall by continuous and unabated price hike.
Prominent among those who participated in the protest march and addressed the workers included- Vijay Laxmi Dutta Provincial vice president, Bharti , Jyoti, Anju Grover, Raj Kumari and Veena.
