Bharatiya Janata Party ( BJP) leader LK Advani on Thursday came down heavily on the Government for hiking fuel prices and warned that the move would lead to the ruling coalition's downfall.
"This government has signed its own exit," Advani said. "It is going to have a cascading effect on prices of all commodities."
Advani was speaking on the sidelines of a function where a book on Arvind Lele, a late BJP leader, was released.
On the stalled Indo-US civil nuclear deal, he said: "We are for buying nuclear fuel from the US required for our nuclear reactors. But we want to renegotiate the whole deal."
He said India should not be forced to keep away from further nuclear tests in exchange for nuclear cooperation with the US.
