Mnp Cong sends 92 members to join ‘Mehangai Par Halla Bol’

Correspondent

Manipur Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) president K Meghachandra lamented on Thursday that the biggest problems facing India today were unemployment, inflation and growing hatred.
He said India’s development pace got retarded under the BJP rule, while talking to reporters after flagging off the state Congress delegation to joint Congress’s “Mahangai Par Halla Bol” at Ram Leela Maidan, New Delhi on September 4. A 92-member delegation of the MPCC left Imphal today to take part in the rally organized by Congress to protest against the ever increasing prices of the goods and unemployment.
The MPCC president said that the economy of the country was in such a distress stage that even government employees and pensioners (after retirement from government jobs) were also hit hard, He alleged that even though people were at the limit of their woes, the BJP-led government at the Centre did nothing to check inflation. Instead, the government was trying to divert the real issues, he added.
Due to the mismanagement of the economy, such a distressed state of economy was never seen before, he said. He said that the Congress would continue to raise its voice for the country’s distressed citizens while asserting that “Mahangai Par Halla Bol” was being organized to take the voice of distressed citizens to the ears of the government. The MPCC president further slammed the state government asking what they had done to relieve its people from the clutch of price hikes apart from lip service. He said the 100-day programme which the N Biren Singh led government had announced after the second term was installed was just for the eyewash and that the state government was doing nothing to translate its 100-day programme.
“We see no progress in the state since the BJP formed the government. The 100-day programme announced by the government is nothing but to lure the people,” he said.
The Congress gave the “Dilli Chalo” call for its ‘Mehangai Par Halla Bol rally’ in New Delhi’s Ramlila Maidan on September 4, stepping up its attack on the BJP-led Centre over the issue of price rise.
