Congress protests against cooking gas price hike

Friday, 14 February 2020 | PNS | Dehradun

The Uttarakhand Congress organised a state-wide protest on recent steep hike in the price of cooking gas on Thursday. The Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) chief Pritam Singh participated in protest in Haridwar while the Congress leaders participated in protests held in all district headquarters.

In provisional state capital Dehradun, the Congress workers led by Mahanagar President Lal Chand Sharma and district Congress president Sanjay Kishore assembled at the state headquarters of the party and marched to the Astley Hall.

Here the agitated workers burned the effigy of the union government on price rise. Speaking on the occasion, Lal Chand Sharma said that the government has increased the price of cooking gas by Rs 150 per cylinder which is like kicking poor in stomach. He said that the government is putting the load of its failures on the general public due to which people are facing problems. The Congress leaders said that the government is increasing the price of cooking gas regularly in the year 2020 and two steep hikes have already occurred.

 He said that the inflation has now become out of control and general public is feeling cheated.  They said that the international prices of crude are witnessing a downfall but instead of reducing prices, the government is continuously increasing the prices for benefit of the old companies.
