Telugu Desam Polit Bureau member K.Yerrannaidu preparing food along with women opposing the petro and LPG hike in Srikakulam on Monday
SRIKKAULAM: Telugu Desam Polit Bureau member Kinjarapu Yerrannaidu and other senior leaders including Pratibha Bharati, Kala Venkata Rao, Tammineni Seetaram on Monday asked the State government to emulate West Bengal's initiative in reducing the petroleum and LPG hike on common man.
They said that West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had slashed the taxes to minimise the burden after the Union government revised diesel and cooking gas prices.
The Telugu Desam leaders organised a human chain and novel protest of cooking with firewood at 7 Road junction. Mr. Yerrannaidu said the people would teach a lesson to Congress governments both at the Centre and State as they were least bothered to understand the woes of the people with the frequent increase in petroleum products.
“The State government gets an additional revenue of Rs.40 crore in the form of additional sales tax. The government can forego it to benefit the public on the lines of West Bengal's government,” he added.
