Kolkata, Sep 26: Launching a scathing attack on the Congress-led UPA regime, the Trinamool Congress on Tuesday said nationwide protests against the central government are imminent as it is pursuing anti-people policies.




"There will be nationwide protests against the centre. Common man will come down to the streets to protest against the centre because common people have no option other than protesting and opposing its anti-people policies," said party MP and former union minister Sougata Roy.

"The government has become anti-people...they are no longer bothered about common man," said Roy.

The party's six union ministers resigned on Friday and gave a letter withdrawing the party's support to the UPA to President Pranab Mukherjee.
