In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Congress took out a strong protest rally in Jammu against the anti-people policies of the au-thorities.
Led by Congress leaders Mula Ram, Raman Bhalla, Ravinder Sharma and Thakur Hari Singh Chib, the rally started from main bazaar Bishnah, carrying banners and raising slogans against the unprecedented taxes on petrol, diesel and gas lead-ing to record rates and uncontrolled price rise of all commodities of common use.
They raised slogans against the BJP and Indian govt charging them of befooling the people during elections on false slogans and now breaking the backbone of common man.
They submitted a memorandum to the president of India through Tehsildar asking him to check on prices.
Speaking on the occasion, Mula Ram, said that BJP is simply looting the people in the name of taxes.
He questioned the BJP-led government on what basis does it decide on the prices of petroleum products every day and the explanation for subject-ing people of J&K to this cruelty.—KMS
