New Delhi, July 2 (ANI): RJD chief Lalu Prasad on Thursday called upon the government to make the Liberhan Commission report on the Babri Masjid demolition public at the earliest.

"The report is already delayed. It should be tabled in the present session of the Parliament," Lalu said outside Parliament.

The one man Commission headed by Justice M S Liberhan submitted its report to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Tuesday.

Reacting to the fuel price hike, Lalu said, "It will adversely affect the agriculture sector in the backdrop of a delayed monsoon."

Petrol and diesel prices rose by as much as 10 percent in India, on Wednesday, the first increase this year and one of the steepest ever.

Petrol prices rose by four rupees a litre, while diesel rates were hiked by two rupees a litre.

Prices were last raised in June last year, when the average price of India's crude imports were 113 dollar a barrel, but they were cut in December and again in January as oil prices tumbled.

The government has not increased the price of cooking gas and kerosene to protect the poor and middle-class.

Despite price increase, oil firms say they were likely to suffer a revenue loss of 560 billion rupees on sale of petrol, diesel, cooking gas and kerosene this fiscal. (ANI)
