Petrol price hike: LDF,BJP declare hartal

harthalThiruvananthapuram: LDF and BJP has declared hartal on Monday in protest against petrol price rise. In a meeting held today to decide the modus operandi of the protest, Convenor Vaikom Vishwan declared the hartal on behalf of the LDF members. According to him central tax is too high and the concession declared by the government is inadequate.

The control on oil prices should be in the hands of the government, he demanded. “The protest shall not end with a single days hartal. If the government does not relent we will initiate a mass protest with the participation of the common man,” he added.
