New Delhi: The ruling Aam Aadmi Party on Monday joined the “Bharat Bandh” against rising fuel prices, but said its “in-principle” participation in the protest against the Modi government’s “anti-people” policies should not been seen as support to the Congress.
Senior AAP leader and Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh participated in the Congress protest at Rajghat. Other party leaders, including Atishi Marlena, attended a protest at Jantar Mantar.
Mr Singh said AAP believes all political parties should unite on issues of national interest.
The AAP said in a statement that all opposition parties must unite and force the Modi government to reverse its “anti-people policies which are solely responsible” for price rise, particularly the unprecedented rise in prices of petrol and diesel.
