Thiruvananthapuram: The UDF organised a state-wide protest against the central and state governments. The dharna is being organised in front of the central and state government offices from 10 am to 1 pm on Monday. Former chief minister Oommen Chandy inaugurated the dharna in front of the secretariat here.
The state government had agreed to the central government's 'One Nation, One Tax' policy first. Then why did they refuse to include petrol, diesel and cooking gas in this, Oommen Chandy asked. He added that this cannot be accepted.
The UDF highlighted issues like fuel price hike, monetization of public sector undertakings and protecting accused in Muttil tree felling case, as part of the dharna. Veteran leaders will inaugurate the dharna in various districts.
