Hyderabad, Apr 17 (UNI) The Opposition Telugu Desam Party (TDP), Communist Party of India (CPI) and CPI(M) leaders and cadres today staged a dharna, organised jointly at all district headquarters, in protest against the Government's failure in controlling the skyrocketing prices of essential commodities.
Participating in the dharna at Indira Park, TDP President and former Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu alleged that the Union and State governments had completely failed to control the prices of necessary goods by encouraging black marketing since the Congress came to power.
Demanding that the Centre take immediate steps to check the price rise, he said the TDP, along with like-minded parties, would continue the struggle in the State until the prices came down.
Stating that the Left parties were raising the issue inside and outside Parliament since the Congress-led UPA assumed charge, CPI(M) State Secretary B V Raghavulu said the comman man was not able to spend hard earned money on food due to spiralling price.
Senior CPI leader and MLC P Nageswara Rao said the vegetables, edible oil and pulses had became dear to the poor and common man as the Government failed to contain inflation in the country.
