The Biju Yuva Janata Dal (BYJD) on Saturday condemned the Central Government for increasing the petrol price for fifth time during the last one and a half months.

Alleging that the UPA-II, which came to power speaking about welfare of ‘Aam Admi’, has failed to control prices of essential commodities by playing into the hands of the private players, BYJD president Sanjay Dasburma called upon the people of the State to oppose such decisions.

The petrol price hike by ` 1.55 per litre effected from Sunday will hit the poor people across the State, Dasburma said and alleged that it will help Congress collect election fund from the private companies which will benefit from the hike.

Stating that agitations have failed to restrain UPA-II from taking such anti-people decisions, BYJD general secretary Bijay Kumar Nayak called upon the people to teach Congress a lesson in next elections.
