More than 20,000 Delhi BJP workers staged Dharna-Demonstration at 25 prominent intersections of the capital to protest against severe scarcity of power-water, unprecedented hike in the price of petrol and demanded the Government to roll back the increased price of petrol and provide sufficient water-power to the people of Delhi.

Addressing the workers, Pradesh President told that Congress Government has become a problem for the people of the country. BJP is the only solution. Hence 120 crore people of the country are looking towards BJP with hope. The irony is that the Central Government is increasing the price of petrol even when the price of crude oil is decreasing in the international market and it preaches the State Government to cut taxes. No other country in the world recovers as much Tax on petrol as the Government of India recovers on it. Here the price of petrol is more than the price of the petrol in USA. 2 crore people of capital do not get sufficient supply of water and power. In many houses of the capital city there is no provision for toilets and kitchens. Congress has ruled India for 50 years after the independence of the country and the condition has become from bad to worse. He further told that this public movement will continue till increased price is withdrawn. On this day there will be unprecedented Band in Delhi because the people do not want the Congress rule now.
