Youth Congress hits streets in protest against rising fuel prices

New Delhi: The Indian Youth Congress workers on Saturday held a massive protest against the rising prices of petrol, diesel, and LPG cylinders in the national capital, saying the government has failed to keep in check the prices of these essential commodities.

The protest was led by youth Congress president BV Srinivas who said that during the UPA regime despite the fact that the prices of crude oil were soaring in the international market, the government at home ensured minimum excise duty and minimum prices for fuel for people.

Hundreds of youth Congress workers were seen protesting in the national capital, similar protests have been on in various parts across the country as the rise in petrol and diesel prices continues for the 13th straight day.
