AAP burns effigies of 'evil of price rise' in Delhi, elsewhere
New Delhi: Protesting against what it said was "skyrocketing" inflation and high petrol prices, AAP workers on Saturday burnt effigies representing the "evil of price rise" to coincide with Dussehra celebrations, the Aam Aadmi Party said.
An AAP statement said such effigies were burnt in all 272 municipal wards in Delhi, as well as in some other states.
"This day symbolises the victory of good over evil. The AAP workers burnt the effigy of the evil of price rise to protest against the problem," the statement said.
The protest was against all central government policies that result in skyrocketing inflation, including hike in patrol prices, the party said.
"The AAP demands that prices of petrol and diesel should be brought down immediately in tune with crude oil prices in the international market so that the benefit is passed on to the common man," it added.
