SP Tulsian of sptulsian.com told CNBC-TV18, "I don't think that the diesel price hike which is still pending, has been given up by the market. It is still very much open because the rupee volatility probably will again force the government for the diesel price hike and that will be positive for oil marketing companies (OMCs). Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) will then probably rise by about Rs 290 or Rs 292 where one should look to exit from the stock."
