Chennai: DMDK founder Vijayakant on Monday announced that his party will organise a one-day fast in all district headquarters against the recent hike in milk prices 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.

Meanwhile, BJP also announced a one-day token fast against the price hike in Chennai tomorrow.
