Mamata banerjee petrol price hike

Bad PM, bad! Trinamool Congress leader Mamata Banerjee (shown here at a 2011 campaign rally) scolded Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for his move to hike India's petrol prices on Thursday. Economists argue the move was needed to stop the plunging rupee and get India's economy back on track. But if Banerjee withdraws support for Singh's United Progressive Alliance, India may be headed for early polls.
