BJD staged a massive demonstration protesting the soaring petrol and diesel prices

Bhubaneswar:1/10/18: The ruling Biju Janata Dal (BJD) on Monday staged a massive demonstration in front of Governor’s House here protesting the soaring petrol and diesel prices in the state.

Upping the ante against the NDA-led Union government, the activists of the ruling party organised a mega convention in the capital city to pressurise the Centre to take steps in reducing prices of petrol and diesel. The party activists took out rallies and chanted slogans against the Centre.

The members of the party’s youth wing Biju Yuva Janata Dal; party’s students’ wing Biju Chhatra Janata Dal and the women wing Biju Mahila Janata Dal also joined the demonstration. The party activists will submit a memorandum of demands to Governor Prof Ganeshi Lal addressing the President of India.

Notably, the ruling party workers had recently staged dharna in front of all petrol pumps from September 7 to 9 to sensitize people against Centre’s inaction on the issue.
