The Delhi state unit of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will take out a protest march to the Prime Minister's house on November 21 to protest against the price rise and the decision to allow foreign direct investment in retail trade.


The protest comes just a day before Parliament meets for the monsoon session.

Delhi BJP president Vijender Gupta said party workers will hold a demonstration at Jantar Mantar and organize corner meetings at 300 locations across the city to make the people aware about "corruption and scams under the Congress rule in the Centre and Delhi".

"Senior party leaders Nitin Gadkari, Rajnath Singh, MA Naqvi, Vijay Kumar Malhotra, Vijay Goel and other senior leaders will address the public meeting at Jantar Mantar. Thousands of BJP workers will march to the PM residence," Gupta said.
