Chandigarh: Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal on Wednesday slammed the Centre for the proposed hike in the prices of petrol, diesel and LPG, saying it is "totally unjustified" and "anti-people."

The Shiromani Akali Dal Patron said the prices of essential commodities are already sky high and a further hike will fuel inflation.

In a statement here, Badal cautioned the Centre against taking such "anti-people" decisions when the common man was already reeling under the unbearable burden of inflation.
