Left to stage sit-in inside Parliament on price rise

The Left parties stage a sit-in inside Parliament House tomorrow to protest the government`s "failure" to contain rising prices of essential commodities.



New Delhi: The Left parties stage a sit-in
inside Parliament House tomorrow to protest the government`s
"failure" to contain rising prices of essential commodities.

As Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar rejected opposition`s
demand for holding a discussion on price rise under rules
which entail voting, the Left parties decided to "carry on our
struggle" by holding a dharna inside the Parliament precincts,
CPI National Secretary D Raja said here.

Both Raja and CPI(M) leader Basudeb Acharia said they will
hold the sit-in inside Parliament precincts as "we do not want
to hold up the proceedings of the House."

Raja said, "We don`t agree with the Speaker`s ruling. The
government should accept its lapses and failures (in checking
the rising prices) and come forward with adequate steps to
control prices".

About the dharna, he said, "We do not want to hold up the
proceedings because we have several important issues to
raise."

Acharia said leaders of CPI(M), CPI, RSP and Forward Bloc
would sit together soon to decide on their future course of
action on how to take on the government on various issues.
