The all-India anti-fuel price hike shutdown evoked a mixed response in Maharashtra on Monday, with all parties - barring the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party and Shiv Sena - joining it wholeheartedly. In Mumbai and other cities, large numbers took to the streets, railway stations, bus depots, and other public areas carrying banners and placards, raising anti-government slogans, taking out processions or staging sit-in protests against the spiraling prices of petrol, diesel and gas.

About The Gallery

The Maharashtra Congress on Monday staged protests in various parts of the state in response to the Bharat Bandh called by the party's central leadership against rising fuel prices. The shutdown is backed by other opposition parties such as the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), the Raj Thackeray-led Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS), the Samajwadi Party, the Peasants and Workers' Party and the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP).
