CPI members protest in Imphal against price hike

CPI leader: "The time has come for all opposition political parties, civil society organisations and student bodies to join hands together and fight against the uncontrolled hike in the prices of the essential commodities">

Manipur State Council of the Communist Party of India (CPI) on Tuesday protested against hike of prices of essential commodities in Imphal.

The sit-in-protest staged at Imphal Irawal Bhavan was participated by leaders, workers and supporters of the party including state council secretary L Sotinkumar and CPI national executive council secretary Dr M Nara Singh.

Talking to reporters at the protest site, party leaders alleged that under the BJP government, prices of all the essential commodities have skyrocketed.

Party state secretary L Sotinkumar said that prices of essential commodities are increasing with every passing day in the state as the BJP-led coalition government has failed to control it. “The uncontrolled hike in the prices of the essential commodities has added a heavy burden to the common people who are facing hardships due to the Covid-19 pandemic”, he alleged.

The CPI leader then alleged that the BJP government is under the control of corporate sectors and the government is working at the behest of the corporate and big businessmen.

“The time has come for all opposition political parties, civil society organisations and student bodies to join hands together and fight against the uncontrolled hike in the prices of the essential commodities”, the state CPI leader added.
