Price rise brews more protests

The Asom Jatiyatabadi Yuba Chhatra Parishad (AJYCP) hit the streets with a 5-hour statewide demonstration demanding measures to check  price hike by the government.

AJYCP leaders and activists in large numbers thronged the district headquarters in the morning where they staged the demo. With banners and playcards the AJYCP activists threaten to intensify agitation unless and until steps are taken to bring down the price level
Talking to Assam Times, the organization’s president Biraj Talukdar said, “the price of essential commodities has gone up, up and up making it difficult for the common people to survive. But the new government is least bothered. Till the other day we hoped a lot from the new government. But only to be disappointed.”
