Silchar, Feb 23: Continuing the Assam Bachao campaign, the Congress party staged a protest against the escalation in the prices of cooking gas at Kalain bazar area under Katigorah constituency of Cachar district.

All India Mahila Congress chief and former Silchar MP Sushmita Dev was seen animated with her sharp jibes on the ruling BJP Government during the protest.

"If the BJP is back in power with its ambitious 100+ seats, prices of essentials will also go out of the reach of the common man making lives miserable. People must understand and support the grand alliance including the Congress party which will make efforts to keep a check on the prices of essential commodities," Dev said.
