Khan accused the central government of ruining the country. Youth Congress workers displayed gas cylinders, petrol and onions around the neck and raised slogans against PM Narendra Modi and CM Trivendra Rawat. On this occasion, the Youth Congress sent a memorandum to the President of India through the SDM, Mussoorie, demanding his intervention.
Khan, along with Secretary Akshat Verma, Megh Singh Kandari and Cantonment Vice-President Mahesh Chand said that Union Minister Smriti Irani protested Rahul Gandhi’s statement and talked about women’s safety, while a BJP MLA had raped a girl in Uttar Pradesh. They said that inflation has broken the back of common people in the country, people were in trouble but the BJP government at the centre had closed its ears and eyes. They further said the government had promised 2 million jobs every year to the youth of the nation, 15 lakh rupees for every citizen, but it was all lies. They further demanded withdrawing the increased prices of petrol, diesel, cooking gas and other essential items.
