On Wednesday the Congress party announced that it will launch a nationwide protest from November 14th to the 29th, against the inflation in the country, and the rising prices for Petrol, Diesel, vegetables and edible oil. ‘Jan Jagran Abhiyan’, is what the party is calling the agitation and said in a statement that it is to fight against the price rise which worsened because of the Pandemic and the crisis surrounding it – unemployment and loss of jobs.
“The cost of subsidised LPG cylinder has gone up by 50 per cent to Rs 900-1,000 in the last one year. Similarly, petrol and diesel prices have gone up by Rs 34.38 and 24.38 to Rs 103.97 and Rs 86.67 per litre, respectively in the last 18 months,” the statement said. The party stated that the rate of unemployment is at an all-time high at 9%, and added that 14 crore jobs were lost during the pandemic. “22 out of 36 states and UTs have run out of MGNREGA funds and an additional Rs 50 thousand crore of budgeted outlay is needed, which the Modi government is refusing to provide. All this is adding to the woes of the people,” the statement pointed out.
“The public harassment campaign of the BJP government is going on, Now Congress will run #JanJagaranAbhiyan. Will take the answer of injustice”, tweeted Congress leader Rahul Gandhi. Congress added that during the protest, the party will consolidate the voices of the people to fight against the unprecedented rise of CNG.

SATIRE DRIVEN, NON-MELODRAMATIC, FOCUSED, AND METICULOUSLY SCRIPTED; THIS MOVIE IS A WINNER THROUGH AND THROUGH!
How can one dislike a film that entertains throughout? In english, this movie title means ‘The engagement is on monday’. There is no surprise in the plot line; all of it is revealed in the title. The story is about the making of an engagement and the joys and troubles involved. Senna Hegde pulls off a regular story with exceptional craft. The highlight of the film is its climax. The climax offers no pomp and show, no tearful departures, no melodramatic breakdowns, no revolutions, no rebellions, no glamour, not even the promised engagement.This film is a must watch not because it is extraordinary, but because it is very ordinary, and the brilliance is entirely in the balance the filmmaker maintained throughout.
THIS PERIOD MOVIE COMES WITH COMPLETE GRANDEUR; GRAND SETS, STYLE, A GOOD CAST, LEAVES NO STONE UNTURNED IN PRODUCTION, BUT FAILS IN ITS EDITING AND COMPOSITION. DQ DOES NOT BECOME KURUP, KURUP BECOMES DQ.
Dulquer remains Dulquer, we recognize him and his methods in all his movies and he repeats himself once again. The actor lacks gravitas in his dialogue delivery and intonation. Can style and glamour make up for lack of method acting in a role like this? Did we expect more?Read More
