Hyderabad, Mar 24 (UNI) The Communist Party of India (CPI) today called upon the party and its units to organise rail roko gherao and undertake dehoarding on April 17 and 18 in the country, to protest against the increase in prices of essential commodities.

The party urged various political parties and democratic forces to unitedly fight against the price rise.
Observing that the recent rise in the price of petroleum products had further aggravated the problems of the people, the party, in the resolution attributed the price rise to liberalization, globalisation and privatisation and the process of reckless economic reform initiated by the government one after another.
