Press Statement
The Left parties, the CPI(M), CPI, RSP & AIFB, have issued the following statement:
The Left parties strongly condemn the steep increase in the price of petrol by Rs. 7.54 per litre. This is a savage attack on the people who are already suffering from the effects of continuous price rise of all essential commodities.
The Left parties are already conducting protests against this price hike. In order to build up a sustained movement to demand a rollback of the price hike, the Left parties have decided to observe an All India Protest Day on May 31, 2012. On this day countrywide protest actions will be held including hartals, demonstrations, picketing, rasta rokos and rallies.
