Samajwadi Party workers on Monday staged a protest against rising prices of cooking gas outside the Uttar Pradesh Assembly building here.

Carrying cut-outs of LPG cylinders and black balloons, Samajwadi Party MLAs, MLCs and other leaders took to the streets and raised anti-government slogans.

The protest was held ahead of the one-day special session of the state assembly.

In a tweet, party president, Akhilesh Yadav posted a picture of his party's protest, and stated "Cylinder worth Rs. 1000 is proving to be costly to the public, it will prove to be costly for the BJP in the 2022 election. End of BJP."

The Congress, SP and various other opposition parties have been criticising the Central government over the issue of rising prices of fuel.

Yesterday, Samajwadi Party (SP) supremo Akhilesh Yadav hit out at the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government in Uttar Pradesh over India's ranking in the global hunger index (GHI). 'BJP govt working in the wrong direction': "Central government said we will make a 5 trillion economy, the UP government said it will make one trillion economy but India is behind Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal in the Hunger Index," Yadav said at a press conference.

He also alleged that the presence of the highest number of malnourished children in UP shows "that the BJP govt is working in the wrong direction".

Yadav also touched on the topic of caste census during the press conference, stating that "SP wants caste census to happen".
