Patna: CPI General Secretary AB Bardhan
on Monday said his party would soon launch nation-wide stir in
phase manner to protest against corruption, price rise and
food insecurity.

"We will soon launch a nation-wide agitation in phase
manner against rampant corruption, price rise, food insecurity
and other burning issues facing the country," Bardhan told
reporters here.

Stating that after hiking the price of petrol, the Centre
was going to raise the prices of kerosene, diesel and cooking
gas, the CPI leader said it would badly affect the people.

Bardhan said even the prices of milk, freight charges and
transportation charges have increase at several places.

He expressed serious concern over alleged inordinate
delay being made in passing the Food Security Bill in
parliament.

"It is also a matter of serious concern that the
government has failed to identify the number of the poor
families," he said.
