RJD MLAs protest rising fuel prices at Bihar Assembly

Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) MLAs on Thursday staged a protest at the state assembly against the rising fuel prices. The protest was staged with the slogans like 'Petrol diesel k daam kam karo', 'Mehngai kam karo', 'Petroleum padarthon ke daam kam karo' and a board targeting Modi government with lines 'Bahut hui Janta par petrol-diesel ki maar, Lag gaya century hai behal petrol-diesel ka daam, daam boundary paar hai atma-nirbhar ki sarkar hai'. "Prices of petroleum products are rising day by day and the government wants to increase it on a daily basis and make the country slave financially. People like 'Adani' and 'Ambani' are given sectors of railways and airways. East India Company came to India for business but slowly-slowly it made the country slave same as BJP came in the way and now is looting the country and targeting the farmers, household products have become expensive and creating problems for people," Bhai Virendra, RJD MLA said. Earlier, Congress workers rode bicycle ride, bullock carts and house carts in Patna to protest against the increase in fuel prices.
