Protest against price rise

The Margherita Regional Student Union staged a protest at NH315 Block Tiniali Margherita on Wednesday, against the sky-rocketing price of essential commodities.

Chintu Gogoi and Rupam Baruah said the BJP's prime issue was price rises before the elections.

They added that Prime Minister Narendra Modi assured everyone that happier days would come before the 2014 Lok Sabha election.

However, the happiest days have come for only Capitalist and Corporate houses such as Adani, Ambani, and Tata where middle-class people are suffering due to sky rocketing prices of everyday essential commodities.
