In a show of dissent, Telugu Desam Party (TDP) workers protested against fuel price hike by standing inside a ring of fire and raising slogans in Andhra Pradesh's Nellore.
After the petrol prices crossed the ₹100/litre mark last week across the country, Andhra Pradesh reported ₹108 per litre, making it the highest in the state. Andhra Pradesh fuel prices are more than its neighbouring states like Telangana, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu.
Opposition parties have planned protests against the fuel price hike across the state with Congress planning to hold a 10-day nationwide agitation against skyrocketing fuel prices.
The country on Saturday saw an increase in petrol prices by 30-40 paisa while diesel prices remained unchanged.
All major opposition parties in the country are currently protesting against the increasing fuel prices. From bicycle rally to bullock cart protests, opposition parties have been showing dissent in their own way.
