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.

Petrol, diesel prices in the national capital were cut by 13 paise and 9 paise respectively on Tuesday, the seventh consecutive day of cut in fuel prices. This follows the 16-day hike which jacked up fuel prices to their highest levels in India.

Oil Minister Dharmendra Pradhan had on Monday ruled out a review of daily price revision formula and reiterated that the government is working on a long-term solution.

Last year too, distressed farmers in Rayalaseema region of Andhra Pradesh in a unique way protested by sending Rs 0.68 paisa cheque as a gift to Prime Minister on his birthday, to highlight the agrarian crisis faced by four districts which fall under the Rayalseema region.
