New Delhi, Aug 17 (ANI): The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) here on Monday staged a protest against the rising prices of essential commodities.
Holding placards and banners condemning the economic and foreign policies of the Congress, hundreds of party workers gathered at Jantar Mantar.
Many senior party leaders were present in the rally including Arun Jaitley, Vijay Kumar Malhotra and Madan Lal Khurana.
BJP president Rajnath Singh hailed party workers for turning up in large numbers and said masses were angered on price rise.
“It is evident from the number of people gathered in the demonstration that there is anger among masses on this price rise issue,” said Rajnath Singh.
He also criticised India-Pakistan Joint statement during recently concluded NAM summit, with Pakistan.
“Pakistan’s President made a promise not only to India but to the world on January 6, 2004 that Pakistan will not allow its soil to be used for terror activities. And until Pakistan stops it, we should not have a dialogue with them. But still the government ignored our stand and hold talks with Pakistan,” he added.
Meanwhile, BJP workers also held a demonstration in Patna. (ANI)
