UPA ally Trinamool Congress on Thursday night expressed unhappiness over the petrol price hike and said the party has called an emergency meeting of its parliamentary party tomorrow to discuss the issue.

"We are unhappy over the hike of petrol price," Trinamool General Secretary Mukul Roy said.

Roy said an emergency meeting of the Trinamool parliamentary party has been called tomorrow to discuss the issue.

Asked whether there was any possibility of Trinamool quitting the Union ministry or withdrawing support to the UPA government in protest against the hike, Roy said, "How can I say this...I am not going to say anything more except that we are unhappy over the decision."

Oil companies today hiked petrol prices by Rs 1.80 per litre to offset the fall in rupee that has made imports of crude costlier.
