The country is passing through a nightmarish situation – Mamata Banerjee
West Bengal Chief Minister Ms Mamata Banerjee on Facebook:
The country is passing through a nightmarish situation.
Price rise is haunting the people like never before.
From petrol to onions, from diesel to dollar, from fertilizers to day to day expenses, prices are skyrocketing.
The economic disaster through which the country is passing is simply intolerable.
In fact, the economic security of the common people is at stake.
Is it a product of the so-called reforms and activities being pushed by the Government at the Centre in view of the ensuing Lok Sabha election?
Is a type of political gimmickry going on to satisfy some political parties at the expense of the common people?
The country cannot be run like this.
Where is the leader of the country to save the people from economic onslaught and the internal and external security threats?
As a citizen, I feel proud of my country. That is why, I am sharing my grave concern with the people of my country.
Public opinion and mobilization is very much needed at this hour. Let us all take a collective effort to save our country.
