There is a continuous increase in the prices of petrol and diesel in the country. Opposition parties are constantly attacking the central government over rising oil prices. Congress President Sonia Gandhi has written a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi today (Sunday). In the letter, he wrote, ‘Prime Minister, hope you will be well. I am writing this letter to make you aware of the acute pain and crisis that has arisen for every citizen from the skyrocketing oil and cooking gas prices. On the one hand, employment is ending in India, the salaries of the employees are being reduced and household income is continuously decreasing, on the other hand, the middle class and the last marginalized people of the society are struggling for livelihood. . ‘
Sonia Gandhi further wrote in the letter, ‘Rapidly rising inflation and unexpected increase in the price of household goods and every essential item has made these challenges more serious. It is a matter of regret that even in this time of crisis, the Government of India is profiteering people by increasing their suffering instead of alleviating their suffering and suffering. Fuel prices are currently at historically high altitudes, which are completely impractical. It is a fact that in many parts of the country, the price of petrol has also crossed Rs 100 per liter. The ever-increasing prices of diesel have added to the worries of crores of farmers.
