CPI-M led LDF in Kerala holds sit-in against price rise

Last Updated: Monday, December 31, 2012 - 12:42

Thiruvananthapuram: Taking the anti-price rise agitation to the streets, leaders and workers of the LDF on Monday staged a sit-in before the government secretariat here accusing the Congress-led UDF government of failing to bring relief to people reeling under grim inflationary pressure.

Addressing the protesters, CPI(M) stalwart and Opposition Leader VS Achuthanandan lashed out at Chief Minister Oommen Chandy, saying he had no time to address basic issues like price rise as most of the time he is preoccupied in settling internal rifts in the ruling coalition.

"If you cannot ensure supply of food grains and essentials to people at reasonable price, it is better that you step down," Achuthanandan said.

Senior leaders of the LDF components, including CPI(M) state secretary Pinarayi Vijayan and CPI state secretary Pannian Raveendran, are also participating in the protest.
