    Take measures to compensate loses during Lockdown: AAP to Assam Govt

    We want the government to review the situation: Bandip Dutta

    Guwahati: The Assam unit of the Aam Aadmi Party has appealed the State Government to take measures to cover up loses that people in Guwahati will face due to the lockdown.

    Speaking about the lockdown that will be imposed from Sunday night, Bandip Dutta, AAP-Assam general secretary said that the government has announced the lockdown in Guwahati but it seems to be another unplanned one. “We saw that a massive number of people flocked to the markets and at the same time the prices of the essential commodities skyrocketed all of a sudden”, he added.

    He added that the sudden price hike hints that the government had it all unplanned and there were no policies to protect the interest the general citizens. Price hike all of a sudden is a major concern the poor people who somehow manage the meals of the day but the rise have put them in great stress.

    Dutta added that the rising price just before the lockdown has put a question on the existence of the food and civil supply department. It portrays that the supply minister, namely Phani Bhusan Choudhury has failed in maintaining the supply chain.
