Kolkata: Continuing the protest against FDI in multi-brand retail, TMC chief Mamata Banerjee on Saturday urged political parties supporting the UPA government to take a stand on `anti-people decisions` in the interest of the common people and also sought public opinion on these issues.
"Time is running out to voice protest against many anti-people decisions like increase in diesel prices, fertilizer prices, restriction on use of LPG cylinders, introduction of FDI in retail, in pensions and insurance, etc, by UPA-II," Banerjee, the West Bengal chief minister, said in a Facebook post.
"May I request the political parties supporting the UPA-II, to take stand in the interest of common people, so that anti-people decisions are not implemented.”
"May I also seek public opinion on these issues?" she said.
