Senior Congress leader V. M. Sudheeran has urged the Union government to restore administered pricing mechanism for petroleum products. “The common man feels the brunt of this hike. We cannot agree to the claims of oil companies for the frequent price hikes. The government should find a way out to the situation,” he said on Wednesday. Mr. Sudheeran urged the state government to conduct a scientific study on the feasibility of the Athirappilly hydel project. — Staff Reporter
