Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot has targeted the central government over the rising prices of petrol and diesel in the country. CM Gehlot tweeted today that despite the decrease in the price of crude oil in the international market, the price of petrol and diesel is increasing continuously. In many states, the price of petrol has exceeded Rs 100 a liter.
On one hand, the common man is troubled by Kovid and low income, while on the other hand, the Modi government is making it difficult for him due to inflation. The central government is continuously reducing the excise duty on petrol and diesel, in which the states used to get their share, but the special excise duty and additional excise duty in which the states do not get their share is continuously filling their pockets.
One-third of the income of the central government is being earned from the tax of petrol and diesel. When the central government should have given relief to the common man by reducing the tax on petrol and diesel, then in this year's budget, a new cess was imposed on them. This has increased the transportation charges, due to which inflation is increasing on everything. The common man is badly fed up with this inflationary trap woven by the Modi government.
