APCC stir against price rise failure

There seems to be no dearth for the Assam Congressmen to hit the streets against the NDA government at the Centre. The Assam Pradesh Congress Committee will be on a state-wide stir on September 27 alleging failure to rein in the price of essential commodities. With the one hour long stir, Congress will snub the Centre for failing to implement the Food Security Act, 2013.

APCC leaders told Assam Times that the UPA government at the Centre had adopted the Food Security Act to ensure supply of rice, atta and other essential items to the poor people at fair prices. But the NDA government at the Centre has not allowed the Assam government to implement this legislation.
