The unit of the students’ organisation also strongly criticized the BJP led coalition state government for its total failure in controlling the ‘price – hike’ in the state.

Over hundred of students as well as other district portfolios of district unit of the organisation participated in the stir and reverberated the air of the small town with various slogans against the government.

The district leaders of the organisation alleged that the government exploited the people with some anti public decisions and urged government to exempt the people of the state from the unexpected ‘price-hike’ especially in essential commodities as well as life saving drugs in the state at any point.

The organisation also warned the government that if the government would fail to bring the price of the essential commodities as well as life saving medicines under control, the organisation will initiate massive democratic movement against the government’s anti-public move in the days to come.
