Rahul slams Centre over rising fuel prices

Monday, 15 March 2021 | PNS | New Delhi

Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Sunday slammed the Centre over the rise in fuel and gas prices and also the alleged sale of public sector undertakings.

Rahul and the Congress have been attacking the Government over high fuel prices, alleging that it has collected over Rs 21 lakh crore by way of taxes on petroleum products ever since coming to power in 2014.

“The Central Government looting in broad daylight. 1. Massive tax collection on gas-diesel-petrol. 2. Snatching people’’s share, employment and facilities by selling PSU-PSB to friends,” he charged in a tweet in Hindi.

“PM’’s only method, benefit friends at the cost of the country,” the former Congress chief alleged.

The Congress has been stalling proceedings in both houses of Parliament over the rise in prices of petroleum products and demanded a discussion on the issue.
