Udupi: As part of a nationwide protest of Left parties against the Union government, district unit of CPI, CPI(M) and other four wings staged a protest at the Service bus stand here on February 25.

Addressing the protesters K Shanker state committee leader of CPI said that the incidents at the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) showed that there was a systematic propaganda by right-wing elements to take control of the university and impose their anti-democratic ideas on the students.

He asserted that what happened at JNU where students’ union president Kanhaiya Kumar was arrested on sedition charge was an attack on democracy and free speech. The RSS with the backing of BJP-led NDA government at the Centre was attempting to saffronise every sector, including education.

CPI(M) Secretary Balakrishna Shetty addressing the gathering said that the prices of international crude have come down in the international market, but the price of diesel and petrol has gone up in India. The Union Government should bring down the price of diesel and petrol, he added.

Vittal Poojary, Sanjeev Sherigar, H Narashima, Suresh Kallagar, Nalini, Padmavathi, Shekar and others were present.
