Bengaluru: DK Shivakumar, President of the Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee, has slammed the Union Government for calling the reduction in petrol and diesel prices by Rs 5 and Rs 10 per litre, respectively, a “Deepavali gift.”
“Is it a gift in what sense? If the price is Rs 10 and they cut it by Rs 5, it might be considered a gift, but in this case, they took Rs 40 from you and returned Rs 7. If your monthly salary is Rs 20,000 and they raise it to Rs 25,000, it is considered a gift. For so many days, the BJP was pickpocketed. What is the current price of fuel? It should have been Rs 50-60 a litre “he said.
When PV Narsimha Rao, Atal Bihari Vajpayee, and Manmohan Singh were prime ministers, you may compare the crude oil price and the rate at which it was sold. Did this government lower the price of fuel when the price of crude oil fell? He questioned.
DK Shivakumar stated that the Congress would launch a nationwide demonstration from November 14 requesting that the union government cut the price of all essential commodities, including LPG.
