Mysuru, July 1:- Socialist Unity Centre of India (SUCI) staged a protest on Wednesday (July 1), condemning the continuous hike in fuel prices.
The protesters, who had gathered in front of the deputy commissioner’s (DC) office here, said that the petroleum minister has shamelessly justified the fuel price hike. Excise duty on fuel and state government’s VAT should be reduced, said the protesters. They urged state and central governments to provide free treatment for coronavirus patients.
District secretariat members M Umadevi, Chandrashekhar Meti, Seema, Sandhya, Harish, Asiya, Kalavathi, Sunil, Chandrakala, Basavaraj and others were present. (MR/KS)
