BJP MP criticises Modi over petrol prices

New Delhi, September 6: A day after Modi Government decided to give relief to its citizens by slashing excise duty on Petrol and Diesel by Rs 2.50 per litre but this didn't go well with party's own MP Shyama Charan Gupta who comes from Allahabad constituency. 

BJP MP Shyama Charan took a jibe at the centre's move claiming that it will not benefit the common man as the prices will again reach the same price in coming fifteen to twenty days. 

According to BJP MP Shyamacharan, a relief of Rs 5 or less will not benefit the general public as people are expecting prices to go back to Rs 40 as these prices also reached from Rs 40 to Rs 80 during UPA 2. 

He also claimed that people will get the real relief if the prices go back to Rs 40, meanwhile, MP Shyamacharan also raised a question on the major difference of oil price in India compared to other countries and a research should be done on this.

The BJP MP also went on to add that due to the increase in the prices of petroleum products, all goods are affected and inflation starts to increase rapidly, so the government should curb the prices of petrol and diesel.

The BJP MP also said that with the increase in prices of LPG, petrol and diesel, people are very upset. This problem is common in every home, so the government should check why oil prices in neighbouring countries are low.
