Pune: After Trinamool Congress, another UPA
ally NCP on Saturday came out in opposition against the fule price
hike as Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar said his
party was against the move by the Centre as it has increased
hardships of the common man.

Noting that the fuel hike also included a Rs 50 hike
per LPG cylinder, Pawar said "NCP is against the move as it
has mounted the hardships of the common man."
Pawar said although his party was a coalition partner
of Congress in the UPA government, it was not in charge of the
Petroleum portfolio.
Shiv Sena and BJP staged demonstrations in the city
against the fuel hike, taking out a morcha and raising
anti-UPA slogans.
