Communist deputy calls for adding socioeconomic demands to political agenda
MOSCOW. Sept 15 (Interfax) - Head of the Moscow City Duma communist group Andrei Klychkov called for adding socioeconomic slogans to the political ones at the Moscow opposition rally on Saturday.
"I think time has come to add socioeconomic slogans to the political agenda, and each must aware that it is insufficient to come to the square once, twice or thrice per month," he said.
There are many socioeconomic problems in the country, for instance, tariffs of natural monopoly entities in Russia grew twice this year, Klychkov said.
He also criticized the education bill submitted by the government to the State Duma.
The Communist Party will hold a protest against the increased public utility tariffs and the "destruction" of education on September 22, he said.
The action will start at noon on Revolutsii Square in Moscow.
"All power to the Soviets, all power to the people! Russia will be free," Klychkov said.
