New Delhi [India], Feb 13 (ANI): Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Thursday took a dig at the ruling party over the LPG cylinder price hike by sharing on Twitter an erstwhile UPA era picture of BJP leaders protesting against cooking gas price hike.

"I agree with these members of the BJP as they protest the astronomical 150 Rs price hike in LPG cylinders. RollBackHike," tweeted Rahul Gandhi.

The state-run Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) on Wednesday hiked the prices of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) gas cylinder of 14.2 kg by over Rs 140 per cylinder.
