Middle class `worst hit' by fuel price hike

By Our Staff Reporter

PONDICHERRY, NOV. 7. The Pattali Makkal Katchi Parliamentary party leader and Pondicherry MP, M. Ramadass, today said the hike in prices of petroleum products and LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) had caused dissatisfaction among consumers. Middle class people were the worst hit.

There were several other ways where austerity could be adopted to make up the financial loss or burden faced by the Government.
