Fuel Price Hike: NCP spokesperson Nawab Malik condemns PM Modi

After a hike in fuel rates for three consecutive days, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) spokesperson Nawab Malik accused the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government at the Centre of cutting pockets of people by increasing the prices of petrol and diesel.

Diesel and petrol prices have been steadily rising in the country. Petrol is expected to go beyond a hundred in a few days. Two districts in the state crossed the Rs100-mark for the price of a litre of petrol while three districts breached the Rs 90-level for diesel on Monday.

Nawab Malik has raised a question here that how the prices are increasing in India when world rates are low?

In a veiled attack on the Modi government at the Centre, Nawab Malik said: “The central government is working to cut the pockets of the people. Has this government become a pickpocketing government?”

Moreover, Malik has demanded an end to looting by raising diesel and petrol prices during the time of crisis in the country.

Condemning PM Modi over his failure to tackle hike in fuel prices stated that when the country is reeling under crisis due to COVID-19, people are suffering due to massive hike in prices of petrol and diesel. Particularly when prices of petroleum products have been stabilised across the world.

The petrol and diesel prices were hiked for the second day in a row on Tuesday, May 11. Petrol price has been hiked by 26 paise and diesel by 31 paise. On Monday, May 10 petrol price was hiked by 18 to 27 paise and diesel by 26 to 35 paise.

In Mumbai, petrol is now available at INR 98.12 per litre. The price of diesel has gone up to INR 90. In Delhi, the petrol price has been hiked by 27 paise taking the amount to INR 92. Diesel price has gone up by 30 paise, which comes to INR 82.36.

After the Assembly elections in five states, including West Bengal, oil companies started revising the fuel prices. In a week’s time, petrol became costlier by INR 1.14 and diesel by INR 1.33.
