The Trinamool Congress, which is the largest ally in the present UPA government is upset with the decision of increase in the petrol prices. They have already threatened to pull out of the government. Resignation letters of all ministers are with Mamatha Banerjee. But is it just a hard bargain to ensure more funds to debt torn Bengal. They have already toned down their voice and announced that they want to meet the prime minister just to appraise him of common man greviances but not to demand roll back of prices.
