BJP to organise protests in Karnataka against fuel price hike


BJP Fights againts Fuel Price hike in Karnataka

The BJP plans to hold protests all over Karnataka on June 17 to oppose the recent increase in petrol and diesel prices. This announcement came from the party’s state unit president, B Y Vijayendra, on Sunday. The Karnataka government raised the sales tax on fuel, making petrol more expensive by Rs 3 per litre and diesel by Rs 3.5 per litre.

“We are asking the Chief Minister to take back this decision immediately. We have organized protests across the state for tomorrow, and we will continue to protest until the price hike is reversed,” Vijayendra told PTI in Hassan, the district headquarters town. He mentioned that these protests would be held in all district headquarters across the state.

Vijayendra accused the Chief Minister of increasing fuel prices because he is struggling to start new programs due to five guarantees that have been promised. “After the Lok Sabha elections, the Congress government increased fuel prices. This price hike will affect everyone in the state,” Vijayendra explained.

Officials say the reason for the price increase is to raise funds. Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, who is also the Finance Minister, reviewed the state’s revenue and financial situation before making this decision. The price increase came just days after the Lok Sabha election results. In these elections, the NDA won 19 out of 28 seats in Karnataka, with the BJP winning 17 seats and JD(S) winning 2 seats. The ruling Congress party in Karnataka won 9 seats.

The BJP is unhappy with the price hike and believes it will burden the people of Karnataka. They plan to keep protesting until the government rolls back the increase. The party believes that the price hike is unfair, especially since it came right after the elections, and it will impact everyone in the state.
