Gadchiroli Sept. 1 (District Correspondent) The Nationalist Youth Congress staged anti-inflation agitation ’50 Khoke-Mahagai Ok’ at Indira Square of the city on Thursday to protest against rising prices of essential commodities and fuel. District NCP Youth President Liladhar Bharadkar led the agitation.
A large number of NCP youth workers assembled at the square and shouted slogans demanding early control on the prices of essential commodities and withdrawal of GST on food items.
The imposition of GST on the food grains like wheat, rice, dal and other staple grains by the central government is causing loss to the farmers and traders are taking advantage. The common people and laborers are facing severe financial difficulties. The GST should therefore be withdrawn immediately, demanded Mr. Ravindra Wasekar while speaking on the occasion.
The central government is busy is bringing down the democratically elected governments by use of its power but does not talk about the issues of the common people, rising prices and other important issues. As the price of gas cylinder has again been increased, the people have to pay Rs 1,110 per cylinder which can’t be afforded by them. The prices should be rolled down as early as possible, demanded Mr. Bharadkar.
State NCP Youth General Secretary, Prof. Rinku Papadkar, Youth District Vice President Prasad Pawar, City President Amol Kulmethe, Ranjit Ramteke, Yogesh Nandgaye, Kapil Bagde, Sanjay Koche, Inderpal Gedam, Faim Kazi, Akash Pagade, Sridhar Yerawar, Vivek Babanwade, Sadeep Tunkalwar and many other workers participated in this agitation.
