GUWAHATI, March 13 � The All Assam Students� Union today took out a cycle rally at all the district and subdivision headquarters of the State in protest against the government�s failure to curb the prices of petroleum products and essential items including foodstuff.
In a statement the AASU said that the anti-people policies of both the Centre and the State government had been at the root of the unprecedented rise in the prices of essential commodities.
�The hike in the prices of petrol and diesel caused a spiraling effect on prices of all other commodities. The government must rescind its decision on the prices of the petroleum products,� the AASU said.
The AASU also lambasted the Chief Minister, saying that he had been extremely indifferent to the situation even as the common people were facing the heat.
