A release stated that the meeting was attended by CPI state secretary L Sotinkumar, district secretary E Sarat, women leader Y Romi Devi, state executive members P Khogen and Th Suresh, and other local secretaries and members from Kakching and Thoubal.

Calling the price hike an unnecessary move, L  Sotinkumar accused the ruling government for catering to the greed of wealthy corporations while exploiting the general public and the economically backward people, it added.

He condemned the home minister’s recent statement regarding the imposition of Hindi language as a compulsory till class 10 in the eight states of North Eastern India. He said that the step poses a threat to the indigenous language, culture and integration of the state.

He compared the minister’s recent step to the likeness of the ‘one culture, one language and one religion’ agenda of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).

Speaking on the occasion, E Sarat said that the working class people of the state had been the prime victim of the price hike. He urged the public to fight together against the unjust price hike.

Local secretary of Kakching local council M Rameshor said that many poor families from remote places are facing adversity in travelling to hospitals owing to the price hike of oil and petroleum products. He accused the state government for being incompetent in handling the issue.
