Govt. deceiving people by reducing petrol price by Rs. 1.60: Rajnath Singh
Srinagar, June 1 (ANI): Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Rajnath Singh on Friday accused the UPA Government of deceiving the people with its reported move to reduce the petrol price by Rs. 1.60.
"If the government is genuinely serious about reducing the price of petrol, then it should withdraw the central taxes, which are imposed on petrol and diesel," said Singh.
"On the basis of the calculations, I can say that if the Central Government withdraws the central taxes from petrol and diesel then the petrol would be sold at somewhere between 40-45 rupees," he added.
Oil Minister S. Jaipal Reddy had earlier acknowledged the price increase was deeply unpopular but said the oil companies, which have not been compensated by the government for the losses, 'are bleeding'.
The hike in prices meant that the price of petrol in Delhi went up from rupees.65.64 to.73.14 per litre. In Mumbai, the price shot up from rupees.70.66 to 78.16 per litre whereas in Kolkata, the price rose to rupees 77.53 from 70.03 per litre. In southern state of Tamil Nadu, the cost jumped from rupees 69.55 to 77.05 per litre. (ANI)
