Panaji: In an unique protest, the Congress leaders in Goa were seen riding Horse Carriage in the heart of Capital City Panaji today, to protest against the fuel price hike.

Congress President Girish Chodankar, Leader of Opposition Chandrakant Kavlekar, Senior MLA Digamber Kamat, MLA Alexio Reginaldo Lourenco were seen riding Horse carriage as part of their protest from their party head office to the North Goa Collectorate Building.

The leaders submitted memorandum to North Collector Nila Mohanan demanding roll back of hiked prices of petrol and diesel. They have demanded that State should make a pitch for inclusion of petroleum under Goods and Service Tax (GST) to bring the prices under control.

Speaking to reporters after meeting collector, Kavlekar said that the decision to increase the fule prices has caused inconvenience to the common man and has exposed the government’s anti people polices.

“Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar in his last budget had assured that the petrol prices will not cross Rs 65 mark and if it does he will reduce VAT and bring it under control. Today Chief Minister is not there and hence we demand the cabinet advisory committee immediately meet on the issue and take decision to roll back VAT,” Kavlekar said.
