Chennai: DMDK founder Vijayakant on Monday announced that his party will organise a one-day fast in all

and bus ticket fares on November 24.

The hike would double the spending of a family, the actor
politician said in a release.

Referring to Chief Minister Jayalalithaa`s contention that
the move was to save transport corporations and the state-run
Aavin, he said that his party was concerned about the spending
burden on the people.

The fast would be between 8 am and 5 pm, he said.

the price hike in Chennai tomorrow.
