Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi today slammed the government on petrol price hike, saying the Congress-led UPA-II celeberated its third anniversary by burdening the common man with the steep hike.

"It is pity that just after celebrating three years of UPA-II rule in the Centre, the Congress-led alliance government has burdened the public with such a steep petrol price hike," Modi said here.

Modi, who was here to attend a function to mark the birth anniversary of Maharana Pratap, said petrol price hike shows failure of UPA Government and demanded immediate rollback of the decision.

After paying a floral tribute to Maharana Pratap at Moti Magri in the morning, Modi went to Sukhadia Rangmanch in the Town Hall Campus and addressed a function organised by Maharana Pratap Jayanti Ayojan Samiti.
