Chennai:  Decrying the hike in diesel prices as “unjustified” action, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa today demanded its roll back and withdrawal of powers granted to oil companies to regulate fuel prices.

“There was no justification to resort to diesel price hike when the prices of crude oil in the international market were decreasing and Indian rupee appreciating against US dollar,” she said in a statement here.
