The Congress is planning to stage protests at the grassroot level, starting from November 12, against the BJP governments at the Centre and in the state on issues such as demonetisation and “corruption”.
The party has planned statewide protests against demonetisation, in which a section of senior party leaders will stage protests outside the office of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) in Lucknow and Kanpur. All district units have also been asked to stage protests in their respective areas on the same day.
“It is not us, the RBI governor himself had said that the country had to see a loss due to demonetisation. So we want to ask Modi ji as well as his government who actually benefited from the move. It is the biggest scam of the country, which is unfolding one after another,” said state Congress president Raj Babbar.
Babbar said the Congress is also planning to bring up issues such as law and order, price rise, “corruption” and so on.
“We will raise questions on each of these issues,” said the state Congress president.
“Since we are planning protests and programs across the state, it would not be possible without connecting with the workers. Thus, through Shakti events, our leaders will connect with workers at the nyaya panchayat and booth level,” added Babbar.
