Pune, Jun 26: After Trinamool Congress, another UPA ally NCP came out in opposition against the fule price hike as Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar said his party was against the move by the Centre as it has increased hardships of the common man.

Noting that the fuel hike also included a Rs 50 hike per LPG cylinder, Pawar said "NCP is against the move as it has mounted the hardships of the common man."

Pawar said although his party was a coalition partner of Congress in the UPA government, it was not in charge of the Petroleum portfolio.

Shiv Sena and BJP staged demonstrations in the city against the fuel hike, taking out a morcha and raising anti-UPA slogans.
