As High Court ordered not to sell liquor in the 500 metres of the highway, the state government has come up with a novel idea to recover the losses. The state increased the petrol prices by Rs. 3.
It has not gone down well with the common man and petrol dealers association. The government is being targeted for increasing the petrol prices by Rs. 3. “The common man will have to face the brunt because of the state government’s decision. People now will have to shell out Rs. 77.45 for one-litre petrol. This is not the way government should recover their losses. We oppose this move of the state,” said Ravi Shinde, president, Petrol Dealers Association.
