#BharatBandh: Manmohan lashes out at Modi-govt over rising petro prices
Former PM Manmohan Singh today lashed out at the Narendra Modi-led government, saying it has done a lot which isn't in the interest of the nation and has now crossed all limits. He made these remarks at an opposition protest against rising fuel prices in New Delhi. The Congress had called for a 'Bharat Bandh' today to protest against the rising fuel prices.
Singh urged opposition parties to unite to save Indian democracy
Leaders of various opposition parties led by Congress President Rahul Gandhi kickstarted the protest today from Rajghat. Manmohan Singh also urged opposition parties to shed their differences and unite to save democracy in the country. Gandhi, soon after his return from the Kailash Mansarovar, reached Rajghat and paid tributes to Mahatma Gandhi. The 'Bandh' began after Gandhi offered holy water from the pilgrimage there.
