CPI(M) slams diesel price hike, cap on LPG supply

KOLKATA, September 14, 2012 (PTI)

Slamming the Centre for hiking the price of diesel and restricting supply of cooking gas, CPI(M) General Secretary Prakash Karat on Friday said his party will hold discussions with other parties on organising a stir to press for roll back.

"Both the decisions of hiking the diesel price and restricting the supply of subsidised cooking to six cylinders per household in a year are going to hit the common people badly," he told reporters at the airport here.

"CPI(M) has already strongly criticised the decision of the Centre. We are going to discuss with other parties as to how to organise a common movement to demand the rollback of the decision," he said.

Mr Karat was here in connection with a CPI(M) State Committee meeting.

The government on Thursday hiked diesel prices by a steep Rs. 5.62 per litre and restricted the supply of subsidised cooking gas to 6 cylinders per household in a year to fetch an additional Rs. 20,300 crore.
