‘Mehangai Chaupals’ – Congress’ Mega Rally Against Price Rise In Delhi: DETAILS

New Delhi: The Indian National Congress is all set to escalate its attack against the Narendra Modi-led Union Government. Beginning August 17, the party will be organising “mehangai chaupal” (discussions on price rise) in all assembly constituencies and this is expected to culminate in a mega rally in Delhi’s Ramlila Maidan on August 28. The same has been confirmed by Congress general secretary Jairam Ramesh in a statement where he mentioned interactive meetings would be organised in mandis, retail markets and other locations.Also Read – Potato Rs 31/Kg, Tomato Rs 50/Kg, Capsicum Rs 200/Kg: Vegetable Prices Pinch Middle Class The Most

The Congress leader also responded to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘black magic’ jibe at Congress protest wearing black clothes in Parliament and outside in protest against price rise. ‘Black magic can’t end your black days’, PM had said. Responding to this, Mr Ramesh said, “Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s desperate attempt to tar legitimate protest as ‘black magic’ only highlights the BJP government’s insecurity about its failure to control rampaging inflation and unemployment”.
