Siddharamaiah asks HDK to roll back fuel price hike

Bengaluru: Former Chief Minister Siddharamaiah, who is the Coalition Co-ordination Committee Chairman, has written to Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy asking him to roll back fuel price hike and also not to cut rice quota under the Anna Bhagya Scheme.

Expressing displeasure at the blow delivered to his most popular rice scheme, Siddharamaiah in his letter has also disapproved the additional tax burden on petrol and diesel, which not only affects the common man but also runs contrary to Congress’ stand at the National-level against the Narendra Modi government demanding reduction in tax burden on petrol and diesel.

Meanwhile, coming under pressure from the coalition partner, Kumaraswamy is expected to announce the roll back during his reply to the debate on the budget in the Legislative Assembly.  He has been compelled to take a re-look at the hike in fuel price and cut in Anna Bhagya rice quota from 7kg to 5kg.
