Yes, I agree with the rejection of the new price rise. As most of people in the world know, the high increase of oil prices goes to the oil seller. So there should be a plan to avoid the prices increasing and help people on their income at least as bonus to the employees.
How come the government decided even to think about raising the prices for poor people, while other countries announce the excess of their oil income and plans to help by doing the needed infrastructures, not adding and creating new prices and causing suffering for their poor people. So at the end what about the new high oil income programming and why this time is it taking a loan instead of being covered by this high oil income?
