More protests: CPI (M) workers demonstrating on Parliament Street in

New Delhi: In protest against the hike in fuel prices, the Communist Party of India, the Communist Party of India (Marxist), the Revolutionary Socialist Party and the Forward Block of Delhi staged a demonstration at Jantar Mantar here on Monday. The march to Parliament was stopped short by the police at Parliament Street.

Benefitting oil lobby

CPI (M) MP Brinda Karat said that the government's policy based on international prices was for the benefit of the oil lobby as the cost of production for petroleum products is significantly below the existing prices.

CPI national secretary Amarjeet Kaur said this move by the government will affect every aspect of common man's life and also added that while the BJP and the Congress were on the same lines regarding economic policy, the Congress had gone a step further by lending their support to the khaas admi instead of the aam admi.

An appeal was made to the public to continue the fight against the rise in prices in order to make the Centre increase subsidies for the benefit of the poor.
