Will picket at Vijay Chowk over rising fuel prices
He said reducing fuel prices was part of the BJP’s strategy to win the elections. Now they are compensating by raising prices under the guise of the Russia-Ukraine crisis. That’s a lie. Tomorrow on 31st March, we will hold a dharna at Vijay Chowk against the hike in fuel prices.
what is the last date for this robbery
Let us inform that on Wednesday, the Congress strongly targeted the central government over the ever-increasing fuel prices and called it extortion of the Modi government.

He said that the prices of petrol and diesel have been increased for the eighth time today. Is there an end date for this robbery? Is the PM not accountable to the people? Is there any answer?
