Ever since the Budget of the upcoming financial year (2021-22)was laid down by the Finance Minister, , former Congress President Rahul Gandhi has been continuously targeting the Modi government. Rahul Gandhi in his latest tweet attacked the government (Modi Govt) for the skyrocketing prices of petrol and diesel and the price of LPG. He alleged that the Modi government at the Center has spoiled the budget of both the country and the house.
Sharing a news on Saturday morning, Rahul Gandhi wrote in his tweet, “Modi government has spoiled the budget – both of the country and home!”. Earlier, on Friday, the Congress leader again criticized the budget. He said that in Modi’s ‘Mitra’ centric budget – farmers will have to pay more for petrol and diesel and will not get any financial help. One more blow to the country’s donor after being crushed by three anti-agricultural laws! “
Let us remind you Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has proposed an agricultural cess of Rs 2.5 per liter on petrol and four rupees on diesel in the general budget. However, this increase will be adjusted by reducing the same amount as excise duty.
On the other hand, on Friday, petrol in Delhi has increased by about 30 paise to a new high of Rs 86.95 per liter. In Mumbai, petrol has reached a new high of Rs 93.49 per liter.
