Hyderabad: The fuel prices were finally cut, but the reduction was not in rupees. Mimicking that a Telangana man marked his protest by donating 9 paisa cheque to Prime Minister’s relief fund.

V Chandraiah, from Sirsilla district, handed over the cheque to the district collector during Praja Vani programme.

"You reduced 9 paise in fuel price. The amount I saved from the drop in petrol price, I am donating to the PM’s relief fund. Hope my donation will be used for a good cause,” he said.
