Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Friday refused to comment on the effect of hike in prices of petrol and diesel and said the media should tell what type of days have come.
"I don`t want to comment at this time, I want to know from you (media) that whether `Achche Din` has come or not," Yadav said in an apparent dig at the NDA government while replying a question regarding hike in prices of diesel and petrol during inauguration of `Van Mahotsava`.
"Some journalists were roughed up yesterday itself, you tell me what type of days have come," he said, while indirectly referring to violence during BJP Yuva Morcha`s protest yesterday.
