Cong. begins ‘100 not out’ protest against petrol price hike


Congress on Friday began protests against petrol price hike in Bengaluru and other parts of the State under the banner “100 not out.”

Meanwhile, Home and Law and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Basavaraj Bommai deplored the physical protest during COVID-19 lockdown and described Congress leaders as “habitual offenders.”

“Protests against price rise can be conducted in different ways, including social media,” he said.

KPCC president DK Shivakumar, Leader of the Opposition Siddaramaiah, senior leaders RV Deshpande and Dinesh Gundu Rao and legislators participated in the stir in front of petrol bunks in Bengaluru and raised slogans against the BJP government at the Centre.

Congress has decided to hold protests against fuel price hike from June 11 to 15 at 5,000 petrol bunks.

Mr. Shivakumar told mediapersons that petrol prices had been hiked 48 times since January 2021.
