Modi govt has created records in ‘giving trouble’ to people: Priyanka Gandhi on fuel prices


Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Sunday attacked the Centre over rising prices of petrol and diesel, alleging that the Modi government has created records in “giving trouble” to people.

Taking to Twitter, the Congress general secretary tagged a media report which said that this year petrol prices have increased by a record Rs 23.53.

“Modi ji’s government has made big records in giving trouble to the public. Highest unemployment: in Modi government. Government properties being sold: in Modi government. Petrol rates increased the most in a year: in Modi government,” Gandhi said in a tweet in Hindi.

Petrol and diesel prices were hiked for the fourth consecutive day today after a two-day pause across the country Saturday. The latest increase that follows the unrelenting hike in international oil prices has pushed pump rates across the country to their highest-ever levels.

Petrol now costs ₹108.99 a litre in Delhi and ₹114.81 in Mumbai. Diesel is now priced at ₹97.72 a litre in Delhi and ₹105.86 in Mumbai.

As for Kolkata and Chennai, petrol and diesel cost ₹109.46 and ₹100.84 respectively in Kolkata and ₹105.74 and ₹101.92 respectively in Chennai.

In Bengaluru, petrol is available at ₹112.79 per litre and diesel at ₹103.72 and in Hyderabad, one litre of petrol is now available at ₹113.36 and diesel cost ₹106.60 for one litre of diesel.
