BJP leader and Bihar minister Narayan Prasad on Friday said ordinary people will not be affected by the hike since they use public transport.
“Common people mostly use buses. Only a few use private transportation,” Mr Prasad said, adding that politicians, not common people, are the ones up in arms about it.
The BJP leader also said the people are used to inflation and high prices.
“It is affecting me too. The people will get used to it,” Mr Prasad added.
Meanwhile, petrol and diesel prices rose for the 11th straight day and touched new highs across the country after crossing ₹ 100 per litre in some places.
