The left party demanded the immediate withdrawal of RTC charges and they also demanded the reduction of taxes on petrol, diesel and gas, given the fact that taxes on the commodities are highest when compared to other states.
Congress President, Sonia Gandhi had asked the Congress-ruled government to bear the additional burden on this. The state BJP unit said that it is up to the state government to see how to settle it off, but in no way the common man needs to suffer from this burden.
The diesel prices have increased and the Andhra Pradesh bus fare has also been increased. “In the name of the common man they came into power but today the government has shifted the burden of Rs 600cr to the common man and increased the bus fares too much. That is why we are demanding the roll back of prices from the state as well as from the union government, because in the state we have the own state congress government and in the center also,” said Bandaru Dattatreya, BJP leader.
The government has forgotten the common man and is just looking to benefit some sections of the society, because it is the common man who has to travel in buses and walk on roads not the government.
