The Biju Yuva Janata Dal (BYJD) has criticised the Centre for the hike in the price of cooking gas again.

  In a statement, BYJD president and government deputy chief whip Sanjay Dasburma warned that if the hike of ` 12 per cylinder of LPG is not rolled back, a Statewide campaign would be launched against the Centre.

 Stating that only recently the Centre had hiked diesel price by ` 5 a litere and put restriction on the use of subsidised LPG cylinders, Dasburma alleged that people will be forced to purchase them from the open market by paying more than ` 1,000 per cylinder.

 Criticising the Centre by giving deaf ear to public opinion and raising the price of subsidised LPG cylinder, Dasburma alleged that it will burden the common people further. He further alleged that the price situation has gone beyond the Centre’s control due to mismanagement and the people will give a fitting reply to this.

 The CPI also organised a demonstration against LPG price hike here and took out a procession from its headquarters up to the Rajmahal square.

CPI State secretariat member Ramakrushna Panda alleged that the Centre is dancing to the tune of the oil companies and dealers by increasing the price of diesel and LPG. In a statement, CPM State secretariat member Dushmant Das opposed the hike in the gas price and demanded its immediate withdrawal.
