Early Times Report

Jammu, June 29: District Congress Committee (DCC) Jammu Rural on Monday protested against incessant fuel price hike across the country and urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government to roll back the prices.
Led by DCC Rural President Hari Singh Chib, the senior Congress leaders, youth Congress and other party activsts assembled near Office of the SDM North Jammu and raised slogans against the BJP Government over the rising fuel prices across the country.
Talking to reporters here, Mula Ram lamented that petrol and diesel prices are being increased daily when the entire country is hit by Covid-19 pandemic, and people are in crisis due to the lockdown. He said that the Central Government is looting the people by hiking the excise duty on petrol and diesel.
Hari Singh Chib said that the anti-people policies of the BJP Government are responsible for the high prices of petrol, diesel and LPG despite crude oil consistently remaining down to less than 50 per cent for the last six years. “International crude oil prices are the lowest in the last 15 years, yet petrol and diesel prices are skyrocketing, while the common people, the middle class, the farmers, the transporters and small and medium businesses are bearing the pain of high oil rates,” Chib rued.
“Modi government has earned Rs 28 lakh crores in the last six years by increasing the excise duty on petrol and diesel alone,” Chib emphasized.
Youth Congress activists, led by J&K President Uday Bhanu Chib, also joined the protest led by DCC Jammu Rural against the unregulated hike in the prices of petrol and diesel. Uday Chib accused the government of picking pockets of the common man and also taking away their livelihood.
Terming the hike in petrol and diesel price ‘historic’, former Minister Ch Gharu Ram, Sr Congress leaders Shivdev Singh Manhas Ex MLA, MK Bhardwaj, Pawan Raina, Shashi Sharma and Ajaz Choudhary State Vice President J&K Youth Congress termed the steepest fuel price hike will have cascading effects on other essential commodities effecting people already suffering from the exhaustive policies of the NDA Government.
Later, the senior Congress leaders submitted a memorandum through Pawan Kotwal, SDM Jammu North, addressed to the President of India for immediate roll back of hike in petrol and diesel prices from the Central Government.
Among others who joined the protest included Ashok Dubey Sec PCC, Ravinder Singh Sr Vice President District from Marh, Rattan Lal Sharma ex Chairman MC and Vice President District Ram Pal Councillior and Gen Secy District Vijay Shastri, From khour Kamal Singh, Swarm Singh,
