Dharna Against Price Hiking

A Dharna against the phenomenon of price hiking was organized jointly with Dynamic Action on September 24th 2011 at Thiruvalla (Opposite of Transport Bus Stand).

The socio-economic and political nexus which contributed to the price hiking was discussed. The arrogance of the corporate and markets over governments and people of the land was highly condemned. The understanding of price hiking phenomenon as nothing but robbing or snatching away from the poor people’s pocket was explained. A Booklet on ‘Prathirodhangalude puthiya Sabdangal’ was produced and distributed during the Dharna. A Signature campaign was also done from the public.
