"Do you know, how many times prices have been increased, affecting the interest of the common people during UPA-II? Today again, the central government has hiked LPG prices by 11.42 per cylinder. Very bad, very sad," Banerjee posted on Facebook.

Following the central government's decision to raise the commission paid to the dealers, cooking gas (LPG) price was Saturday hiked by Rs. 11.42 per cylinder.

In Kolkata the new price is now at Rs. 412.42 per cylinder.

Since her party's withdrawal of support from the United Progressive Alliance government, Banerjee has never lost any opportunity to criticise the Congress-led UPA and has been vociferous in her attacks against the economic reforms initiated by it.
