Kolkata, Sep 13 (IANS) The Samajwadi Party said the anti-people policies of the Congress-led central government will take the country towards devastation and asserted it would fight the diesel price hike announced Thursday.

“This is nothing but an shameless example of anti-people policies pursued by the Congress. They will take the country towards destruction. The decision is anti-people and we will oppose it,” said party general secretary Kiranmoy Nanda.

The government Thursday announced a hike in diesel price by Rs.five a litre and restricted availability of cooking gas cylinders per family to six per year.The decisions come into effect midnight Thursday.

“The government doesn’t have the guts to face parliament. That is why they are increasing the fuel prices when the parliament is not in session,” said Nanda.
