ITANAGAR, Nov 13: Arunachal Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) on Wednesday staged a peaceful dharna here at the Tennis Court as a protest against the NDA’s government policies that have allegedly led to an unprecedented economic slowdown and other issues.
The dharna was participated by APCC President, Nabam Tuki, APYC President, Geli Ete, Former APCC President Takam Sanjoy, Assam Pradesh Congress Committee Vice President Dwijen Sharma, former Minister Bosiram Siram and party workers. 
In his address, Sharma said that the dharna aims to highlight the faulty policies such as CAB, privatization of government firms, failure to contain unemployment scenario etc by the ruling BJP government at the centre. He pointed out that today the country is going through a heavy economic recession due to defective policies of the central government. “Employment, banking sector and automobile industry etc have been adversely affected due to economic slowdown. Crores of people have been rendered jobless due to shut down of industries and banks and farmers across the country are facing the brunt of flawed agriculture-related  schemes and common people are now feeling being cheated and betrayed,” Sharma alleged.
Attacking the government over alleged ‘job crisis’, the Congress leaders said that Modi government has become synonymous with unemployment, as the country’s unemployment rate rose to its highest level  at 8.1 % in last 45 years. Congress leadership present at the dharna also highlighted the rising prices of onion which has already crossed Rs 100 per kg.
“We would like to ask Modi ji to ensure that essential commodities  like onion are made available to common people at remunerative prices and give a time frame when will his tall pre-poll promises be fulfilled” the Congress leaders remarked.
