Petrol 100 rupees / liter Is. Modi government is doing a great job of emptying your pocket and giving it to ‘friends’! “

Amid rising oil prices, on Sunday, Congress President Sonia Gandhi also wrote a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. In the letter, he wrote, ‘Prime Minister, I am writing this letter to make you aware of the deep pain and distress caused to every citizen by skyrocketing oil and cooking gas prices. On the one hand, employment is ending in India, the salaries of 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.
The Congress President said in the letter that the fast rising inflation and unexpected increase in the price of household goods and every essential item has made the challenges more serious. It is a matter of sadness that even in this time of crisis, the Government of India is profiteering by increasing the suffering and suffering of the people instead of removing them. Fuel prices are historically at the maximum height, which is completely impractical. “
