Guwahati/ 9th April’2018 (Prag News desk):
Congress President Rahul Gandhi will be leading a protest in a nationwide fast today along with his party members in retaliation to parliament’s non-functioning and on-going disruptions causing the assembly to stop work for longer hours. The protest is actually against the ruling NDA party and the Modi government who have been blamed for non-functioning of the Parliament during the recently concluded Budget Session.
The fast has been organized largely to rebuke against the largely wasted Budget Session of the Parliament which concluded on 6th April. Both the parties BJP and Congress have been playing blame game holding each other as culprit for the failure of the functioning of the Budget session and each of the party announced country wide fasts in protest.
Congress workers will be holding a day-long fast across states and district headquarters to protest against the BJP government in a peaceful manner.
The protest will be held at Raj Ghat in New Delhi as part of the “nationwide fast”, protesting against the BJP government. During the peaceful demonstration, the Congress members including party President Rahul Gandhi will be also throwing light on key issues related to the alleged dilution of the SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities Act), 1989, farm distress and disillusionment among the youth.
