The District Congress Committee of Kangra today held a massive protest against the excessive rise in prices of petrol, diesel and LPG under the BJP government. The protest was led by DCC president Ajay Mahajan.
Congress leaders raised slogans against the alleged anti-people policies of the NDA government. The protesters marched through main streets of Dharamsala and later submitted a memorandum to the Kangra DC.
Later, a rally was also held in which Congress leaders criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for allegedly bringing the nation on the verge of bankruptcy, imposing heavy taxes and his failure to check rising prices in the country.
They said petrol and diesel prices were being hiked by 80 paisa a litre each day, taking the total increase in the last 10 days to Rs 10 per litre.
They demanded that the rising prices be brought under control as these affected the poor and the middle class people.
