    The real reason for Fuel price hike is here. Shameless people who caused this issue are protesting

    @Raju – The link you provided is very informative and provides a matter of fact analysis regarding fuel prices in India! Congress and UPA has NO moral right to protest as it is their own short sighted blunders that put us in this place today ! This is the classic case of “run with the hare and hunt with the hounds”
