Opposition leaders led by Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on August 3 took out a cycle march to the Parliament as a symbolic protest against the rising fuel prices in the country.
This comes after Rahul Gandhi led an opposition meeting amid the ongoing stalemate in Parliament. The march started from Constitution Club soon after the meeting was over.
“One of the ways to draw the attention (of the government) to the issue is by cycling to parliament. People of India are struggling..." Rahul Gandhi said at the breakfast meet.
The meeting was convened to plan strategies with regard to the stalemate in Parliament during the ongoing Monsoon Session over a host of issues, including the Pegasus Project row, farm reform laws, and rising fuel prices.
Hours after the cycle ride, Rahul Gandhi tweeted in Hindi: "Our face or name is not needed. All that's important is that we're representing people. In every face are crores of faces who are fed up with inflation." He also used the Prime Minister's poll promise of "Achchhe Din" (better days) to hit back at him, "Yehi hain acche din (Are these the good days)"."
Apart from the Congress, NCP, Shiv Sena, RJD, SP, CPI(M), CPI, IUML, Revolutionary Socialist Party (RSP), Kerala Congress (M), Jharkhand Mukti Morcha, National Conference, TMC and Loktantrik Janata Dal (LJD) participated in the breakfast meeting of Opposition Floor leaders.
