New Delhi, June 29 | Delhi Congress leaders staged a protest against hike in fuel prices, raising slogans against the BJP-led central government and the AAP dispensation in the national capital.
Congress president Anil Kumar and party workers, however, were detained later by police at a petrol pump near Parmanand hospital.
Kumar said police detained him and party workers as they tried to go to Raj Niwas, which is Delhi Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal’s official residence, to lodge their protest against the rising prices of petrol and diesel.
Police said they were detained around 10 am and would be released soon. Protesting against the fuel price hike, the Delhi Congress chief, said, “People are already suffering from coronavirus and consequences of lockdown. At such a time, the rise in prices of petrol and diesel by the Modi government and Kejriwal government in Delhi is adding to their woes.”
