ITANAGAR, Aug 5: As part of the Congress' nationwide protest against inflation and unemployment, the Arunachal Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) also organized 'Raj Bhawan Gherao' march today.
Hundreds of Congress workers including former chief minister and incumbent President APCC, Nabam Tuki participated in the protest march but security forces stopped the protest march from proceeding further towards the Raj Bhawan.
Speaking to the media, Tuki said the  protest was against inflation, unparallel GST on essential commodities and the Agnipath scheme.
 Today the Congress party is organizing a nationwide protest. Inflation in essential commodities like LPG , Petrol and GST has hit hard the common public, he said. “Earlier, the price of domestic LPG was Rs 400 only but now it has gone up to Rs 1100, which is unbearable for the common public. It is high time the public raises their voice against the BJP government," Tuki said.
On the Agnipath scheme, he stated that in the name of employment the BJP is playing with the future of the youths. "Indian Army is the most prestigious service of the nation, but here too they are demeaning its motive as well as discouraging our soldiers by giving only four years of service that too without any other prescribed incentives," Tuki said.
 Earlier, President Arunachal Pradesh Youth Congress (APYC) Tarh Johny slammed the BJP-led state government for using security forces to halt the peaceful ‘Raj Bhawan gherao’ march. 
"When the ruling BJP demonstrates in front of the Raj Bhawan, no forces are directed to halt them, no one questions them," he said.
He also slammed the BJP government for demeaning the national flag in the name of “Har Ghar Tiranga” campaign.  "Low-quality fabric and selling the national flag at Rs. 25 per flag is an insult to the nation,"  he said.
