“Time is running out to voice protests against many anti-people decisions like increase in diesel prices, fertilizer prices, restriction on use of LPG cylinders, introduction of FDI in retail, in pensions and insurance, etc., by UPA-II,” said Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, in a Facebook post on Saturday.
Urging the allies of UPA II to take a stand on “anti-people” policies, the Trinamool Congress chief wrote on her Facebook wall: “I request the political parties supporting the UPA-II to take a stand in the interest of common people so that anti-people decisions are not implemented.”
Protesting against FDI in multi-brand retail, Ms. Banerjee also sought public opinion on the issues. Her comments came on a day when activist Medha Patkar called on her at the Secretariat.
It was learnt that she lauded Ms. Banerjee for her opposition to the FDI.
Last month, Ms. Banerjee had withdrawn her support from the UPA-II protesting FDI in retail and increase in fuel prices.
