In an editorial posted on Shiv Sena daily ‘Saamana’, the Sena attacked the Central Government for the rise in fuel prices. In a lengthy piece, the editorial added that fuel prices have been increased despite the fact that crude oil prices haven’t surged.

An excerpt from the editorial read “increasing fuel prices might be filling the coffers of the Centre, but it should keep in mind that it is emptying the pockets of common man.”

“Only two things are increasing in the country today – Covid-19 count and fuel prices... There is at least an attempt to curb the Covid-19 spread, but there is total silence on the rising fuel prices. Since the lockdown ended, the Covid-19 cases have increased and since ‘unlock’ fuel prices are skyrocketing,” the editorial added. 

Other concerns were highlighted by this article, pointing out that diesel prices have officially overtaken petrol prices in New Delhi, something that’s unheard of. Though the price difference is marginal, this is the first time in history that diesel prices have surged past petrol, which is indeed concerning signs for the common individual. 

In June alone, Mumbai saw its fuel prices being increased by Rs 10 per litre compared to the weeks prior. Given that the economy is in poor shape right now, these additional costs are severely impacting the common citizens of the country.
