Srinagar: The state unit of Congress party and the left wing Communist Party of India (M) on Monday staged a protest in response to the Bharat Bandh called against the rising fuel prices across India.
Scores of Congress workers led by JKPCC President Ghulam Ahmad Mir this afternoon assembled at Lal Chowk, the commercial hub of this capital city and staged demonstration against the BJP led government, witnesses told Kashmir Reader. Chanting slogans against PM Modi, the protesters blocked Maulana Azad Road causing disruption in the smooth flow of traffic.

A similar protest was carried out by CPI (M) leader Mohammad Yousuf Targami at the Press Enclave here, witnesses said.
“Is the current situation in India the dream that Modi had shown to people of country?” Tarigami asked
