Jammu, Oct.16
National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) today protested against Petrol price hike by Rs 1.34 a litre on Saturday and and diesel by Rs 2.37 a litre — “fifth hike increase in two months”.

Scores of National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) activists led by Jammu and Kashmir state President Neeraj Kundan demonstrated against the Centre government on Sunday at Jammu university gate demanding immediate roll-back of the latest hike in petrol and diesel prices.

The students pushed their bikes and scooters from jammu university gate towards Bikram chowk citing their inability to afford the sky-rocketing fuel prices and were rasining salogans “Modi Sarkaar Hai Hai”, “Doond Ka Lawoo Ache Din”; “Kahan Gaye Ache Din?,

Highlighting the promises made by PM Narendra Modi during the Lok Sabha election campaign, NSUI State President Neeraj Kundan accused the government of being insensitive towards the Aam Aadmi and for taking U-turn on his promise of ‘Acche Din’.

Neeraj Kundan, Jammu and Kashmir NSUI President said, “The Prime Minister should apologize for the false promises he made. This price hike has come at a time when the farmers in the country are facing an acute agrarian crisis without much compensation from the government; this step would only increase the burden on them”.

“It is high time our Prime Minister should start thinking about the citizens and not focus on a selected few industrialists”, he added.
