Mamata to quit if LPG prices are hiked

mamata banerjeeKolkatta: Trinamool Congress chief and West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee warned the UPA government once again of her withdrawal of support if diesel and LPG prices are hiked again. “I am concerned about LPG and diesel, where the government is planning to increase prices. If price rise happens, then we may have to think again,” Banerjee said.

This statement comes after Prime Minister Manmohan Singh told Trinamool Congress MPs on Tuesday that there will be no rolling back to the pre-liberalisation days, stonewalling their protest against the petrol price hike. He even refused to promise that diesel and kerosene prices would remain untouched.Finance minister Pranab Mukherjee, meanwhile, negotiated the Rs 19,000-crore bailout package with Banerjee in Kolkata.
