The issue of increasing prices of petrol and diesel in India remains a matter of discussion. In this matter, the Modi government has been on the target of opposition parties for the past several days. Actually, it is right to be so. Because before this, the price of petrol and diesel never went above Rs 100 under the rule of any government.
Earlier in the year 2013, the Congress was strongly opposed by many leaders of the Bharatiya Janata Party on the sudden increase in the prices of petrol and diesel by the then UPA government. But even then the price of petrol used to be Rs 65 to 70 per liter.
Now Bollywood actor Divyendu Sharma aka Munna Bhaiya of the popular web series ‘Mirzapur’ has taken a dig at the sky rocketing fuel prices. Divyendu tweeted and wrote that “Good News!!! Banks are offering personal loans on low interest rates for buying petrol.”
In fact, the rate at which petrol and diesel prices are increasing in the country. It is clear from this that the life of the poor and middle-class people has become difficult. After the Corona pandemic, the prices of petrol and diesel have played an important role in badly affecting the lives of the general public.
Let us tell you that the reason behind the rising prices of petrol and diesel has been attributed by the state-owned oil companies is the rise in the prices of crude oil in the international market.
But the data given by the government is a witness to the fact that the prices of crude oil in the international market have nothing to do with the prices of petrol and diesel in the domestic market.
