CPI Launches Protests Against Rise In Fuel Prices

Hyderabad | 19th February 2021
The Telangana wing of the CPI today organised a demonstration against the dramatic rise in the prices of petrol, diesel and LPG gas cylinders in the nation.

In the protest, held at Himayatnagar, the party's leaders and workers slammed both the Modi-led union government and the KCR-led state government for failing to control the price rise, and claimed that the failure showed the "anti-people" inclinations of both the governments.

They also demanded that the prices for fuel be reduced immediately to "relieve" the poor and middle class sections of the country from "added economic burdens", and warned that the failure to do so would prompt the party to launch "continuous and intensified protests".

CPI Secretary, Ch Venkat Reddy and former MP Aziz Pasha were among the leaders who participated in the protest.

Speaking on the occasion, the leaders accused the Modi government of filling the pockets of corporate companies at the cost of the common man.

"The state and union governments are ruining the lives of the poor and the middle classes only to support the big, already-rich corporates. Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao remain mute spectators while the poor people of the country suffer. They should instead work towards lowering the taxes and fuel prices," the two leaders said.

"The ever-rising inflation and the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic hit the economically disadvantaged people across the country the hardest. Scores even lost employment. Despite all this, the two governments are burdening the people further by deliberately pushing up fuel prices. The Modi government should stop looting the people and ensure that the poor are relieved from this burden. If it does not do so, the people will revolt. The parties of the Left will also support them - we will take up protests against the feudal governments in the state and at the Centre," they warned.
