New Delhi: Senior Congress leader Anil
Shastri has come out against the fuel price hike dubbing the
rise in prices of LPG and kerosene as "disastrous" and asked
party chief Sonia Gandhi to urgently intervene.

"Increase in prices of kerosene and cooking gas is
disastrous. The common man is badly affected. Soniaji must
immediately intervene," he wrote in his twitter.

Shastri is a special invitee to the Congress Working
Committee and is also the editor of party mouthpiece `Congress
Sandesh`.

This is perhaps for the first time that a senior party
leader has criticised the government on economic policy
through twitter.

Former Union Minister Shashi Tharoor had created many
a flutter in the Congress by twitting on diverse issues
including the government`s foreign policy.
