NEW DELHI, Jun 24: The Congress on Wednesday announced two programmes on Friday and Monday to oppose the Chinese incursions in the Indian territory by paying homage to the martyrs of Ladakh and against the unprecedented rise in the prices of petrol and diesel respectively.
AICC general secretary K C Venugopal said the Congress will observe "Shaheedon ko Salaam Divas" across the country by sitting under martyr memorials or under the statues of Mahatma Gandhi and freedom fighters in the respective locations. No slogans but silent protests and lighting of candles and lamps in tribute to the martyrs between 11 am and 12 noon, he said, adding that a massive online campaign on the social media will also be launched that day under head "Speak up for Our Jawans."
On Monday, the Congress will organise a 2-hour dharna at every district headquarters from 10 am to protest against the rise in the prices of petrol and diesels. Venugopal said the programmes that day include videos and posts highlighting the plights of truck and taxi drivers and the common man in particular. He said the state Congrss committees will follow up by holding dharnas from June 30 to July 4 at taluka/tehsil and block levels.
