HIGHLIGHTS

  • Congress plans to start protests across India from 5th November onwards.
  • The protests will address issues such as unemployment and economic slowdown amongst other things.
  • The protests are to be organized at district levels in all state capitals

 To highlight the issues such as unemployment, unprecedent economic slowdown, rise in prices of essential commodities, collapse of the banking system and farmers distress, the Congress will launch nationwide protests from November 5.

Congress general secretary K C Venugopal said that the protests will highlight the plight of the common people. The party will protest against the anti-people economic policies and decisions of the Narendra Modi-led NDA government at the Centre.

The nationwide protests will be organised at district level and in all the state capitals from November 5 to 15 and will culminate with a massive rally against government in New Delhi, said Venugopal.

The decision was taken in the meeting headed by Congress president Sonia Gandhi with senior leaders on September 12 and 13. The earlier schedule of the program was slated between October 15 and 25. The program had to be postponed because of the assembly elections.
