UPA ally, Mamata Banerjee, will hit the streets of Kolkata tomorrow to protest against the steep petrol price hike effected on Wednesday.
In what is likely to be a quaint sight, the West Bengal Chief Minister will march from Jadavpur to Hazra in south Kolkata. Her close aid and Union Railway Minister Mukul Roy did his bit yesterday, participating in a Trinamool Congress protest in the city.
Ms Banerjee was one of the quickest off the block to vocally protest when the hike of Rs 6.28 plus taxes was announced on Wednesday. She made clear that she was not threatening to destabilize the UPA government by pulling out of it, but also that her party had the right to protest.
