Addressing the protestors, AAP candidate for DK Lok Sabha constituency M R Vasudev said that although deputy commissioner has issued an order not to hike the toll fee few days ago, the authorities are collecting high fee from the passing vehicles.

He said that after AAP members staged the protest to lower the toll fee on April 1, the DC had passed an order to continue the original fee, but contractors of the four-laning project of the national highway have increased the fee, which is condemned.
