Srinagar: Seeking the fulfillment of multiple demands, scores of workers from Communist Party of India (CPI) staged a protest in Press Enclave Srinagar on Thursday.
The protestors said that whole country especially the State of Jammu and Kashmir is beset with many problems while the State and Central government have failed to address the common problems of people.
CPI workers headed by Ex-MLC Abdul Rehman Takroo demanded that prices of essential commodities should be controlled at an earliest so that a common man may feel relieved.
The protestors urged upon the government to accept genuine demands of the employees and taken stern action against the corrupt officials.
Takroo said that the protest was in pursuance to the call given by CPI against deteriorating law and order situation in the country, particularly price rise inflation and unemployment.
AFSPA should be revoked. Restraint should be exercised to avoid civilian killings while atrocities against women should come to a halt, he said adding that government should extend NREGA scheme to the urban areas.
The protestors demanded that there should be food security to all and the government should also start crop insurance and provide pension to farmers and artisans.
