Tirupur: Street protests against the fuel price hike continued for the third consecutive day in the district on Monday as CPI (M) staged a demonstration at Dharapuram demanding an immediate rollback.
N. Kanagaraj, district committee member of CPI (M), said that increase in the price of diesel, kerosene and LPG cylinders had come at a time when the inflation had crossed nine per cent.
“This is nothing but a double blow to the common man who is now struggling to make both ends meet with the meagre salaries,” he added.
On Sunday, Shiva Sena workers staged a demonstration on the issue blaming the Central Government for allowing the oil companies to raise the fuel prices as and when they wish.
Meanwhile, Tirupur Exporters Association had expressed shock over the Central Government decision to increase the diesel prices by Rs. 3.
“The diesel price hike is going to increase the captive power generation cost significantly which, in turn, will increase the production cost,” TEA president A. Sakthivel said.
