JAMMU: Former Minister Yogesh Sawhney, in a meeting of district Congress leaders, held at his residence, announced that Congress will hold a massive protest against BJP government for excessive hike in petrol, diesel and LPG prices, imposition of property tax in J&K and other such grave issues. Accusing BJP of looting people, he said that anti-people policies of this government are troubling common man. People are badly affected by the economic degradation that has been brought by the Government’s skewed policies and pandemic and therefore imposition of property tax is highly unacceptable coming at this hour. “Further, the price of liquefied petroleum gas domestic cylinder was raised by Rs 50 per unit on Sunday, the third increase in LPG rates since December last year. Fuel prices have spiraled out of control, which is pinching pockets of the common man in India. Thus, with no option left for common man but to come out on the streets, the Congress will stage a massive protest in this regard to demand a rollback in prices,” he said. The Congress leaders present during meeting included Dr Ramakant Khajuria, Ricky Dalotra State General Secretary Youth Congress J&K , Pawan Dev Singh, Chander Sheikhar Sharma , Atul Sharma, Ward President Pradeep Bhagat, Sikander Khan, Marks Gill and Jaipal.Sawhney further said that fuel prices across the country have been a major concern for any Indian lately. A similar increase was affected on diesel, where excise duty was increased to Rs 31.83 per litre from Rs 15.83 per litre. When prices of crude oil were touching more than hundred dollars internationally, the prices under Congress government were still much lesser than they’re now. But it was same BJP leadership who had stepped out on streets for rise in petrol and diesel prices,” he added.Sawhney also congratulated NC and Congress leaders who were elected to DDC from Rajouri as Chairman and Vice Chairman respectively.
