The single largest hike in petrol prices - of Rs. 6.28 per litre, exclusive of taxes - has led to a nationwide outrage with the common man and the government's allies fuming alike over the issue. The new prices came into effect from midnight. "They don't think, how will people afford a 7-and-a-half rupee hike? The prices are already sky high. This is very bad. The government should think about poor people as well," said a resident of Chandigarh.
