Patna: The women cell of the state Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Patna on Sunday took out a rally to protest against the latest hike in the price of diesel fuel and cooking gas cylinders demanding a roll back in the prices saying the move was designed to hurt the poor and the middle class.
Carrying out empty gas cylinders, 'chulhas', and anti-UPA banners, the women took out the rally from the party state headquarters on Birchand Patel Marg to the Dak Bungalow Crossing where they burnt the effigy of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
On the occasion, party state President Dr. C. P. Thakur called for the defeat of the UPA government in the next Parliamentary elections saying the central government had failed to keep prices of essential items under check and for allowing corruption to flourish causing irreparable harm to the nation.
