DMK opposes petrol price hike, to seek roll back
Chennai: After the Trinamool Congress,
another key UPA partner DMK on Friday opposed the petrol price
hike, saying it was "not at all satisfied" with the increase
which was "untimely".
"We are not at all satisfied with the hike. It was
untimely. Frequent increase in petroleum products is not
fair," DMK Parliamentary Party leader in the Lok Sabha T R
Baalu told agency.
He said when the food inflation was already high,
increasing the prices of petroleum products was "definitely a
burden on the common man".
Baalu said his party would raise the issue in the Winter
Session of Parliament beginning on November 22 and demand its
roll back. "We have to ensure that people do not suffer."
He, however, ruled out pulling out of the UPA coalition.
"What is the use of pull out," he asked.
