The noisy protest at Jantar Mantar was led by the party’s Delhi leader, Dilip Pandey. Several legislators took part in the demonstration.
“The rates of petrol and diesel have been increased four times in a year. This hike will make essential commodities dearer,” Pandey said. “We want fuel price rise to be rolled back by the government immediately.”
On May 15, the government increased the price of petrol by Rs.3.13 a litre and diesel by Rs.2.71 a litre.
