Kolkata, Nov 4: Responding to West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's concern over frequent petrol price hikes, Union Commerce and Industry Minister Anand Sharma today (Nov 4) said he would convey this to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi.

"Mamataji has expressed her concern frankly. We are partners in a coalition government at the Centre. So I must convey her concern to the Prime Minister and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi," Sharma told reporters at the state secretariat after meeting Banerjee and interacting with a group of industrialists.

"However, we have to think of the greater interest for the country," Sharma observed. Following the latest hike in petrol price UPA's largest ally Trinamool Congress today threatened to pull out of the coalition.
