Burning issue:CPI (ML)-New Democracy activists cooking food with firewood on the road to register their protest in Khammam on Saturday.

KHAMMAM: Denouncing the latest hike in fuel prices in unequivocal terms, the activists of various political parties staged separate protest demonstrations in the town and elsewhere in the district on Saturday.

The activists of the CPI (ML-New Democracy) have cooked food by burning wood on the main road near Mayuri centre here in a symbolic protest against the steep hike in the prices of domestic LPG, kerosene and diesel.

Earlier, the protesters took out a procession from Ramanarsaiah Vignana Kendram to Mayuri centre.

Addressing the protesters, the party district secretary P. Ranga Rao alleged that the Congress-led UPA government was bent upon imposing backbreaking burden on the common man by indiscriminately increasing the prices of fuel at the regular intervals to fill its coffers.

“The people would teach a fitting lesson to the Congress government at an appropriate time for subjecting them to unbearable financial burden,” he warned and demanded that the government should forthwith revoke the hike in fuel price.

The main opposition Telugu Desam Party, the CPI and the CPI (M) besides the YSR Congress party organised separate protest programmes resenting the fuel hike in Khammam and other parts of the district.
