Lucknow, May 31: Terming hike in petrol prices as an indication of the "anti-people" approach of the UPA government, BSP on Tuesday, May 31 alleged that the Centre is not concerned about the interest of common man.
"The UPA government is least bothered about the interest of common man. The steep hike in petrol prices is indicative of this," BSP national general secretary and cabinet minister Naseemuddin Siddiqui said while addressing a gathering here at Jyotiba Phule park in old city.
The BSP is organising a state-wide agitation against hike in petrol prices and attempts to increase kerosene, diesel and LPG prices.
During agitations, meetings were held in which the BSP leaders tried to put the UPA government on the dock for anti-people policies.
Demanding immediate withdrawal of the petrol price hike, Siddiqui said the petrol price increase would impact the prices of all other commodities, making lives of common people "even more miserable".
