Kolkata: Left Front (LF) will organise a
protest rally and a sit-in against the hike in petro product
prices here on July 12 in which former chief minister
Buddhadev Bhattacharjee and CPI(M) state secretary Biman Bose
would participate.

A LF release said on Saturday Bhattacharjee and other front
leaders would join the sit-in and protest demonstration near
the Ayakar Bhavan (Income-Tax building) here that day.

Bhattacharjee put in a token presence at a Left Front
protest demonstration a day after the Centre announced rise in
prices of diesel, kerosene and LPG on June 25.

LF constituents attended a meeting here yesterday and
expressed concern at the rise in prices of petro products and
essential commmodities and chalked out a protest plan.

The meeting decided to hold dharna and protest
demonstration in some areas of the metropolis on July 7 to
be followed by protest rallies in some city markets in the
next three days.

LF described the price rise as ``an attack on the
common man by the Centre`` and demanded immediate withdrawal
of the hike in petro prices.
