MORE THAN 50,000 BJP WORKERS SHALL COME IN THE STREETS OF DELHI ON 31ST MAY
BJP WORKERS SHALL BLOCK TRAFFIC AND STAGE DEMONSTRATION AT 100 PROMINENT INTERSECTIONS TO PROTEST AGAINST PRICE SPIRAL AND HIKE IN THE PRICE OF PETROL & CNG
New Delhi, 29th May. In a joint Press Conference BJP Delhi Pradesh President Shri Vijender Gupta and Leader of the Opposition in Legislative Assembly Prof. Vijay Kumar Malhotra announced that more than 50,000 BJP workers shall block traffic and stage demonstration at 100 prominent intersections to protest against price spiral and hike in the price of petrol & CNG in Delhi on 31st May. Both the leaders have called upon the people of Delhi to observe unprecedented Bandh in the entire capital. They have requested the people of Delhi that they should avoid using public transport on this day.
Shri Gupta told that almost all the prominent Business Organizations have decided to support the Delhi Bandh by BJP. On this day the Auto-Taxi operators shall participate in the Bandh and protest against the increase in the price of petrol. By imposing VAT on CNG for the first time, the anti people Delhi Government has now brought CNG within the purview of Tax so that in future its price may be hiked. Delhi Government is so much insensitive and anti poor that it has imposed equal 20 percent of VAT on the wine served in 5 star hotels and on petrol which is a betrayal of the common man. By imposing VAT on CNG, the Government agenda of green fuel has also suffered a setback. Due to this the environment of Delhi will also be affected.
BJP Delhi Pradesh President Shri Vijender Gupta has said that Delhi Government has completely failed and it is a burden on the people of Delhi. They shall not tolerate this burden because Delhi Government is throttling the common man. Due to the wrong policies of Central and Delhi Government there is back breaking price spiral in Delhi. The present budget will also fuel the price rise. Although Chief Minister Mrs. Sheila Dikshit is a woman, she has made Sarees used by the women costly and shown her anti woman character. Even today, petrol is being sold at Rs. 73.18 per litre, after increase CNG will be sold at Rs. 35.45 per kg and Diesel is being sold at the rate of Rs. 40.90 per litre.
Lakhs of people are unable to bear the burden of such costly fuel and have stopped using their vehicles. There are about 12 lakh CNG vehicles in Delhi and these are used by the common man and for public transport. By increasing the price of CNG, Government has tried to make the public transport more costly.
In June, 2012, edible Oil, food grains, pulses, spices, ghee, sugar, tea and other consumer goods shall become costly by 5 to 10 percent, according to the experts trading in these commodities. Rupee is being devalued in comparison with Dollar deliberately. It will adversely affect the import of goods. The people of Delhi are already facing the problem of water and power. There is scarcity of power but the Government is increasing the price of UPS and Computers. It indicates its despotic character. During the last two years, the price of petrol has been increased 13 times from Rs. 50 to Rs. 73. It will affect all the sectors and the common man will be crying.
BJP has announced that it will expose the anti people character of the Government before the people of Delhi. The party workers shall reach to every house and every person and call upon them to defeat the Congress. The battle has started. It will be difficult for the Congress Government to face the strong movement of the people.
