Jharkhand Congress stages dharna before Raj Bhawan over rising prices of petrol and diesel

Ranchi, Jun 29 (UNI) Jharkhand Pradesh Congress Committee Chief and Finance Minister Dr Rameshwar Oraon on Monday said hike in the diesel and petrol prices have only added more pain to the sufferings of the people who are battling Coronavirus.
Speaking at a dharna organised by the party against the price increase, he said the move was like rubbing salt to the wounds of the people reeling under economic crisis due to Coronavirus.
The party organised similar agitation at all the district headquarters in the state and after the end of the Dharna a memorandum addressed to the President was handed over to the DCs.
Dr Oraon further said that the the Centre has failed on every front whether it is Coronavirus situation or the security of the country but he central leadership is trying to deflect people's attention from pertinent subjects by harping on the martyrdom of soldiers on the borders.
Former Union Minister Subodhkant Sahai said people were already under pain due to Coronavirus and now inflation has increased to all time high but instead of providing relief to the people, the government was further piling on agony in the lives of the people.
He said the BJP government could neither control the spread of Coronavirus nor the prices of goods.
Health Minister Banna Gupta also condemned the policies of the BJP led central government.
