Congress holds protest-rally in city

Press Trust of India  |  Kolkata 

The in today took out a rally in the city here as part of the nationwide 'Jan Aakrosh Diwas' to protest against the central government's decision.

"We are not against the central government's intention to curb and corruption; we are against the lack of decisiveness and clarity in dealing with the situation. We haven't seen such a rudder-less and indecisive in the country," state president Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury said.



In this he compared Prime Minister Modi with Muhammad bin Tughlaq, the Sultanate's infamous ruler known for his illogical and harsh policies.

Led by Chowdhury, supporters organised a march from the office in Bidhan Bhawan to Park Circus in central Kolkata, raising slogans against the Modi government.

"The lack of vision and immature decision have plunged the nation into total chaos, and it would continue in the days to come," Chowdhury said.

Chowdhury appealed to the Trinamool to take emergency measures for helping the common man.

"The working class people of the state are starving. We want the state to provide them food, fuel and other necessary amenities at low cost through the public distribution system," Chowdhury said.

Chowdhury pointed out the hypocrisy of TMC's protest against demonetisation, saying "those who themselves are accused in Saradha and Narada scams can't talk big about fight against black money. Those who themselves are running a corrupt can't talk against black money".
