The Communist Party of India, Manipur State Council (CPI-MSC) on Tuesday announced that the party will continue to protest against the price hike of petrol and petroleum products till May 9.

In a release, CPI-MSC stated that it has organised a state executive meeting at Irabot Bhawan. In the meeting CPI-MSC declared that the party will continue the protest which commenced from April 8, till May 9, it stated. With the recent surge in the price of petrol and petroleum products in India, the nation of Sri Lanka, which had an economic crisis, charges much lower price for petrol and petroleum products, it added.

It stated that the protest had been halted owing to the adversities of the public and the examinations of the students, and urged the women’s organisations, students’ organisations, CSOs, youth’s organisations and the public to support and participate in the protest.

Rather than the owners of small business owners and transport service providers, the public should blame the government for the rise in the price of services, it added.
