TMC youth wing launches protest march against fuel price hike

The All India Trinamool Youth Congress (AITYC) today took out protest marches in several districts against the sharp rise in fuel prices across the country.

The agitation will continue till tomorrow, TMC sources said.

The ruling Trinamool Congress had yesterday observed a protest march in the city from Subodh Mullick Square to Park Street, under the leadership of party MP, Abhishek Banerjee.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, in a recent tweet, had expressed concern over the spiralling prices of petrol and diesel.

"We are very concerned about the rising prices of petrol and diesel. This will certainly affect prices all around. Common people, farmers and many will suffer," the CM had said in the tweet on May 20.

The Congress, too, took out a protest march in the city today, police said.
