They said that the inflation growth rate was running above 10% and it broke the record of last 25 years. Food products have become expensive and hunger has increased. Rising prices of petrol and diesel are compounding problem of rising inflation. They alleged that the Modi government at the centre was not making any efforts to control inflation.
The Left leaders said that the corona pandemic spoiled life and deprived many people of livelihood. The economy has gone into recession due to lack of demand. To overcome this situation, the general public needs free food grains and cash help, they said. But the Modi government is not only denying this, but is also refusing to provide assistance of Rs four lakh to the families of the victims of this pandemic under the Central Disaster Management Act. According to them poor health system caused more deaths than Corona. Central government should take the responsibility of such deaths, they said.
