Kolkata: To protest against the sky-high fuel prices of recent days, Trinamool Youth Congress today organised a protest march in Kolkata today.
A protest march was held today from Subodh Mullick Square to Park Street, led by National President of AITYC and MP, Abhishek Banerjee. In the districts, the protest rallies will be taken out on Saturday and Sunday .
Addressing the party workers after the march ended, Abhishek Banerjee slammed the Centre for its anti-people policies.
People from all walks of life participated in the protest. There were people from various religions and communities. The party has also organised a protest rally several months back against FCRA Bill.
On this day TMC Youth leader Abhishek Banerjee said “We are launching our protests against fuel price rise today. We will organise protest marches and rallies in every district. Our protest will continue till the hike in prices is not rolled back.We will continue to raise our voices, under the leadership of Mamata Banerjee, whenever people have to bear the brunt of the policies of the Central Government.”
He further added that the Modi Government had promised to bring ‘Achhe Din’. But where is ‘Achhe Din’ ? If people keep money at home, it is termed ‘black money’. And their money in banks is not secure. The kingpin of ‘Sarada’ arrested. Why has Nirav Modi not been arrested yet?
The TMC Youth leader later said “They want to disturb the communal harmony in the State for political gains. We will not allow that. We will fight them back tooth and nail.”
“The death knell for the arrogant government at the Centre has been sounded. Our leader Mamata Banerjee was present at the swearing-in ceremony in Karnataka. The ‘bisarjan’ of the central government will take place in 2019,” says Abhishek Banerjee.
