Kolkata: Senior TMC leader Abhishek Banerjee on Tuesday criticised the BJP-led government at the Centre over spiralling fuel prices and said the people of the country are fed up with its “anti-people policies” and want to get ridof it “at any cost”.

Abhishek, who is also nephew of TMC supremo and West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee, on Wednesday led a protest rally in south Kolkata against the fuel price hike.

The hike in fuel prices is a result of the “anti-people policies” of the Centre and the protests by TMC against it would continue till the prices are rolled back, he said at the rally.

“The people of this country want a pro-people government and restore a secular government at the Centre. They want to get rid of the BJP-led government at the Centre at any cost,” Abhishek, who is also president of TMC’s youth wing, said. “We should strengthen the hands of Mamata Banerjee as only she is able of fighting the BJP. We are not afraidof BJP, ” he said.
