BJP holds scooter rally

Staff Reporter

NELLORE: Activists of the Bharatiya Janata Party took out an impressive scooter rally here on Wednesday in protest against steep increase in prices of cooking gas diesel and kerosene by the Centre.

The protestors led by BJP district general secretary Midatala Ramesh later staged dharna at the Gandhi Bomma Centre to press for immediate withdrawal of the hike.

Addressing the activists, the BJP leader said the UPA-II regime was marked by unprecedented price rise and rampant corruption with some Union Ministers themselves forced to resign and go to jail in connection with scams.

The Manmohan Singh government had no right to continue in office in the wake of its failure to keep its promise to the common people to check price rise.

‘Huge burden'

The hike, 25th since the UPA assumed office would have a cascading effect on all sectors.

It would pose an unbearable burden on the people, making their life all the more miserable, he said.

Disputing the Centre's contention that the hike was inevitable, he said the increase came when the price of crude oil was coming down in the international market.

If the government was sincere in providing relief to the common people, it should reduce the high tax imposed on petroleum products, he added.
