Vadodara BJP to hold rally against price rise tomorrow

india Updated: Jul 09, 2010 18:43 IST

The city unit of BJP has organised a "maha rally" tomorrow to protest hike in prices of essential commodities and demand a roll back in increases of petrol, diesel, kerosene, and LPG prices, its president Bharat Dangar said.

Talking to the newsmen today, Dangar said, "over 25,000 people will take part in the rally."

The BJP MP and city Mayor Balkrishna Shukla criticized IMF(International Monitoring Fund) for projecting India's GDP at over 9 per cent in 2011 and presenting rosy picture of Indian economy without taking ground reality into consideration.

He alleged that IMF has been doing it to keep country under its debt trap. Yogesh Patel, parliamentary secretary to chief minister Narendra Modi and BJP MLA from Raopura Assembly constituency criticized agriculture minister Sharad Pawar for requesting the Prime Minister to "reduce his burden".

Patel said Pawar has totally failed on agriculture front and by making request to the Prime Minister, he wants to escape from the responsibility.
