The workers enacted ‘black money asana’, ‘berozgari asana’, ‘Lalit Modi asana’, ‘petrol and diesel asana’ as passersby cheered them on .

Other ‘asanas’ included those of dhan ghotala, ration, dollar asana and service tax. Congress MP Pawan Kumar Bansal and Congress chief Pardeep Chhabra and other councillors also joined the workers in the act.

In order to mock the NDA government over the high prices of tomatoes, Congress workers rubbed the vegetable on their cheeks, claiming they have now become dearer than facial creams.

In another act, workers were seen seeking loans from friends to show how inflation has affected the poor.

Claiming that the Modi-led government has not managed to fulfil even a single promise it made before the elections, Chhabra said instead of trying to control price rise, the Centre is busy organising yoga events to divert the attention of the people from burning issues. “The traders, employees, workers all are unhappy with the government. Even facial creams are cheaper than tomatoes,” said Chhabra.
