Taking a jibe at Modi Government in the best sarcasting way, the activists of Youth Congress distributed sweets at a petrol pump to mark the steep hike in petrol and diesel prices. The activists also raised slogans against Modi’s ‘Acche Din’ promise.
The activists of Nagpur Loksabha Yuvak Congress gathered at the petrol pump in Gurudeo Nagar in Nandanvan and distributed sweets to customers. They also raised slogans such as “Ab ki bar Modi Sarkar, petrol kar do sau ke par,” “Acche din aa gaye, Modiji chha gaye” and protested the hike in fuel prices. The protest was led by the unit President Bunty Shelke and East Nagpur Youth Congress President Pravin Pote.
Speaking at the protest, Bunty Shelke said that the Modi Government has no idea how the steep hike would burden common people. The people are suffering in the real sense of ‘Acche din.’ The Government is taking such decisions in favour their select industrialists. The common people will be hit hard by the decision to increase the fuel prices that came into effect from midnight of Friday, said Shelke. The petrol and diesel prices were hiked by Rs 3.96 and Rs 2.37 per liter respectively.
Others who participated in the protest include Nilesh Khobragade, Kunal Puri, Chakradhar Bhoyar, Rakesh Nikose, Nilesh Chandrikapure, Nilesh Deshbhratar, Prashant Tannerwar, Pappu Pillewar and others.
