Left to launch campaign against price rise

“The increase in the prices of essential commodities, particularly of food items, has become unbearable for the people. The prices of all pulses have shot up to such an extent, with some varieties priced between Rs 80 and 100 per kg, that the common people cannot afford them any more,” leaders of four Left parties said in a statement.

Claiming that fuel price rise resulted in increased prices of essential commodities, they said: “The price rise has been fuelled by the callous decision of the UPA government to increase the prices of petrol and diesel. The prospects of drought in many states due to deficient monsoon will further put pressure on the prices of food items.”
