BSP chief Mayawati slammed the hike in petrol and diesel prices in Uttar Pradesh, saying it would further increase the "misery" of people hit by inflation and unemployment. Petrol and diesel prices in Uttar Pradesh have been hiked by Rs. 2.5 and Re 1 respectively from Monday night as the government increased VAT. "It is better if government focuses on public interest," she said.
