The ruling Bharatiya Janata Party has termed the hike in petroleum products as a `momentary difficulty` owing to an international crisis. On Monday, the Opposition – led by Congress – called for a Bharat Bandh over the rising fuel prices, which witnessed several incidents of violence.
Fuel price surge has been primarily due to the high cost of global crude oil and a weak rupee.
