India comes together to bandh against petrol price hikes

News Indore, India - 31 May 2012

The recent petrol price hike has brought the Left and Right parties of India together for a nationwide protest — Bharat Bandh, or All India Protest Day, on May 31, 2012. (Photos seen here are in Indore, India.) A similar protest against petrol price hike had happened on July 5, 2010.

The government increased petrol prices nearly 20 occasions, and people are becoming fed up, especially with the Rupee falling even further. Leaders called for Indians of all parties to join them in the Bandh (strike.)
