Nana Patole questions Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar’s silence on fuel prices

Maharashtra Congress chief Nana Patole on Thursday said if actors Amitabh Bachchan and Akshay Kumar do not take a standon the issue of fuel price hike, then screening of their films and shootings would not be allowed in the state. Talking to reporters here, Patole said Bachchan and Kumar had tweeted about fuel price rise during the previous UPA government, but are now silent on the issue. The prices of branded or additive-laced petrol, which attracts higher taxes, have crossed the Rs 100-mark in some places, including Maharashtra. In Mumbai, petrol is now costing Rs 96.32 a litre and diesel Rs 87.32. Patole said the common man has been affected a lot by the increase in prices of petrol and diesel.
