Srinagar, June 07: Democratic Progressive Azad Party (DPAP) on Wednesday announced that it will hold a protest rally on Thursday, June 8, to protest against “price rise, stopping of free ration distribution to poor, reduction of monthly ration quota to consumers and imposition of property tax”.
The decision, according to a statement, was taken at a meeting chaired by DPAP Deputy Chairman G M Saroori here. During the meeting, it was observed that people are suffering due to price hikes in essential commodities.
The meeting observed that the stoppage of free ration to the poor would lead to starvation of people while the reduction in the monthly quota of ration to consumers in rice-consumed J&K is unacceptable.
“On one hand, authorities have failed to control the prices of essential commodities while on the other hand; the government is hiking the prices of gas refills and electricity,” it said, adding that the imposition of property tax in J&K is unacceptable given the fact people in the past few years have suffered losses due to COVID-19 lockdown.
The DPAP protest rally would commence from DPAP Sonwar headquarters and would culminate at the Divisional Commissioner's office, the meeting decided.
