Cong-led Bharat bandh today

NEW DELHI: A number of Opposition parties will unitedly protest the rise in fuel prices in the country on Monday and participate in the ‘Bharat bandh’ called by the Congress.

Top Opposition party leaders like Sharad Pawar, M K Stalin and Left leaders have openly extended their support for the call for shutdown, while the Trinamool Congress has decided to stay away from the protest.

The ruling TMC in West Bengal has expressed support on the issues on which the shutdown has been called, but said it was against any kind of strike in the state according to the stated policy of party supremo and Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.

Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala alleged that the Narendra Modi government has “looted” Rs 11 lakh crore from the people of the country in the last 52 months and was running a “profiteering company” rather than a government.
