Speaking on the occasion, Vikramarka alleged that the NDA government at the Centre made life difficult for common people by raising the Goods and Services Tax (GST) on essential food items.


While Congress nationalised banks, the Narendra Modi-led government is turning banks bankrupt by waiving off loans of big corporates, he alleged.


Finding fault with imposition of GST on food items and price rise, Anasuya, who is popularly known as Seethakka, said ordinary people have been hit hard during BJP rule.

The protest was also against the TRS government in Telangana and the Centre for allegedly not doing enough to provide help for those affected by the recent heavy rains and flood in the state, a Congress press release said.
