New Delhi: At a time when the UPA government is yet to figure out a way to handle its demanding ally Trinamool Congress, the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) has also decided to come out in the open against the Manmohan Singh-led government.

Joining the chorus – Trinamool, BJP, Left - against the government’s in-principle approval to deregulate diesel prices, the NCP has decided that it will hold a rally in Delhi next month over the issue. The Sharad Pawar-led party is also demanding that the government lift the ban on export and also increase the minimum support price (MSP) of agricultural commodities.

Talking to the press after a meeting of the extended working committee, spokesperson DP Tripathi said, “The NCP will hold a massive rally on May 16 at Jantar Mantar in Delhi to mobilise farmers from across the country.”
Tripathi said the NCP demands that curbs on export be done away with while the MSP on various commodities be increased. He also said that the NCP will oppose any increase in diesel, power and fertiliser prices.
