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.
