Allahabad: Soaring electricity bills and related fees are some important financial issues plaguing the common man. However, the Samajwadi party representatives have taken up this as an initiative and started protesting against the same. The student leaders of SP initiated the same at the Student Union building, synonymous to the Allahabad University. They started off by burning effigies of corrupt politicians, bureaucrats and other authorities associated with the billing.
Repercussions of the same have also surfaced at the university premises with the students finding it hard to accommodate the soaring charges as a part of their fee plan. This move by the Samajwadi Party will surely help it gain credibility, especially from the students and college authorities. Allahabad is primarily a student-specific community with many colleges and universities spread across the length and breadth of the city. Therefore, SP is looking to cater to a wider-audience base and assessing and fulfilling the requirements of the concerned students.
While this looks more like a strategic move from the student leaders and party workers, burning effigies can surely land them in trouble if the ruling party plans on initiating certain actions against them. We will keep our readers updated regarding the existing state of this protest.
