At midnight on Wednesday petrol prices went up by a huge Rs 6.28 plus local taxes - the biggest hike in 10 years. The Opposition is threatening to launch a big agitation and the government's own allies and friends are bringing pressure on it to roll back the hike amid fears that LPG and diesel prices will go up next. Will the government effect a partial rollback?
