Kozhikode: Activists of the Muslim Youth League, an affiliate of the Indian Union Muslim League, staged a picketing at the Palayam junction here on Tuesday to protest against the increase in bus fares. Youth League State president K.M. Shaji, who inaugurated the protest, said that the hike would affect household budgets of all sections of people.

The common man had been reeling under the increase in electricity tariff and prices of essential commodities.

Youth League city unit president A. Saffery and general secretary A. Anwer addressed the protesters. The protest was organised as part of the organisation’s State-wide programme.
