SIVASAGAR, May 10: The Sivasagar District Council of Communist Party of India (CPI) on Monday staged a two-hour sit-in as a part of its State-wide campaign here in Sivasagar in front of the Deputy Commissioner’s office, against the rise in the prices of essential commodities as well as petroleum products. They submitted a memorandum that included seven demands, to the Prime Minister through the Deputy Commissioner of Sivasagar, signed by district secretary Kak Gogoi. Kak Gogoi, in an interaction with media, said that the charter of demands include, to control the sky-rocketing rates of essential commodities, to continue the government control on oil companies as before, to strengthen the Public Distribution System (PDS), to identify and punish the unholy businessmen who are involved in price hike and also illegal stockists of essential commodities, to control price of petroleum products and to stop unholy nexus of Congress and BJP with big industrial groups. He also threatened that if the government failed to deal with their demands, they would launch their protest more widely in a democratic way.
