New Delhi, July 4 (ANI): Members of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) are holding a meet in the national capital today to chalk out their strategy for the Monday's shutdown called to protest soaring prices of commodities of daily use.

Besides, the Bharatiya Janata Party-led NDA, various parties like Communist Party of India (Marxist) and others have also called for nationwide Bandh on Monday.

The meeting is being attended by senior BJP leaders like Lal Krishna Advani, Sushma Swaraj, Arun Jaitley, and allies such as Janata Dal (United) chief Sharad Yadav.

On June 25, the Central government had decided to hike petrol and diesel prices to move towards a market-determined fuel price regime in accordance with the Kirit Parikh Committee recommendation.

The government has raised the price of petrol by Rs 3.73 and diesel by Rs 2 per litre, leading to widespread protests across the country.

The surge in fuel rates has raised prices of vegetables and other edible commodities. (ANI)
