Fuel price hike is Modi govt's anniversary gift to people, Omar Abdullah says in sardonic tweets

Srinagar, May 16: Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah took a sarcastic swipe at the Union government hiking fuel prices, saying the move was "to celebrate the first year of good days".

"To celebrate the 1st year of the 'good days' (Acche din) government, please enjoy another huge fuel price hike. You are welcome," Omar tweeted.

Omar denounces fuel price hike.
The Centre yesterday hiked petrol price by Rs 3.13 a litre and diesel by Rs 2.71 per litre, the second straight steep increase in rates this month.
