Delhi Congress protests against sugar price rise, rail fare hike

New Delhi: Accusing the NDA government of giving a “free hand” to hoarders, Delhi Congress today protested against the increase in sugar prices and the hike in rail fares and freight charges.

Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee (DPCC) president Arvinder Singh Lovely and other senior leaders and party workers wore garlands made of sugar pouches and raised anti-BJP slogans in Baljit Nagar area of the national capital, the DPCC said in a statement.

They shouted slogans like “The Modi government has brought good days and also brought costly sugar, costly power and rail fire hike” and “the government which cannot give water and power is useless and it should be changed.”

Lovely said BJP-led Centre's move to give a seven-day notice to power companies to explain was a mere “gimmick”.  Congress further alleged that the Centre was talking about reducing the rail fare hike in Mumbai because of the coming Assembly elections in Maharashtra.
