Members of the Bharatiya Janata Party on Monday took out a procession, with their leaders in a bullock cart, to protest against the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance government’s “failure” to control the rising prices of petroleum and diesel, domestic LPG cylinders and essential commodities.

Memorandum

The procession, led by BJP city unit president M.B. Zirali and office-bearers, began at Rani Chennamma Circle and culminated at the Deputy Commissioner’s office, where they submitted a memorandum addressed to the President.

The members urged the President to issue a direction to the United Progressive Alliance government to take steps to bring down prices of fuels and essential commodities.

They also voiced their opposition to foreign direct investment (FDI) in retail sector.

Mr. Zirali claimed that corruption had crossed all limits under the United Progressive Alliance government.

The people of the country were watching and would teach a proper lesson at the appropriate time, he said.
