CITU and Krishak Sabha have called for a nationwide strike in protest against the unprecedented increase in the prices of petrol-diesel and LPG and demanding repeal of agricultural laws, cancellation of electricity bills, legal guarantee of remunerative price of all crops. In view of this, a 'Path Sabha' (meeting) was held in Naxalbari. Through the meeting, the activists urged the general public to come forward in support of the Bharat Bandh.
Krishak Sabha member Jharen Roy said that their agitation will continue in Delhi in the interest of farmers across the nation. "Even after protesting for ten months, the government is not paying attention to our demands. Hence, a nationwide strike has been called on September 27," Roy added.
At the same time, CITU leader Goutam Ghosh said that the Left is fighting against the anti-people policies of the central and state governments.
