DIBRUGARH: The Asom Jatiyatabadi Yuva Chatra Parishad (AJYCP) on Tuesday staged a protest in Dibrugarh against the skyrocketing price of fuel and other essential commodities. The protesters, led by AJYCP Dibrugarh district president Priyabrat Gohain, took out a rally to the deputy commissioner’s office. Holding banners and placards the AJYCP members raised slogans against the BJP government for failing to curb soaring prices of fuel and other essential commodities in the State.
The agitators came down heavily on the Centre for failing to curb rising fuel prices and accused them of being mute spectators. They also accused Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma of being oblivious to the sufferings of the common people. The organisation further threatened to launch a series of intensive agitations across the State if the government doesn’t initiate steps to control the prices of fuel and other daily needs.
“We demand the immediate intervention of the Centre in checking the skyrocketing prices of petrol and diesel. The price of essential commodities too have shot through the roof due to the rise in fuel price. The common man is being hit hard and they are struggling to survive. The BJP came to power promising good days for the people but they have systematically destroyed the middle and lower class with their anti-people policies. Prices need to come down soon or else there will be huge agitations across the State,” Dibrugarh district president Priyabrat Gohain said.
