AGARTALA, June 23 (TIWN): Reacting over the increasing fuel prices everyday across India, CPI-M former Transport Minister Manik Dey has slammed the Modi Govt for imposing taxes on the common men. He said, when across world, fuel prices are decreasing in India it is increasing and in excuse, Modi Govt said that it is trying to recover the COVID-19 losses. “It never happened earlier that everyday fuel prices are increasing. It is only happening under Modi Govt. This is type of display of don’t care attitude against public. When fuel prices are hardly Rs. 25 the prices at Rs. 80”, said Dey. On Tuesday, petrol prices went to Rs. 79.79 whereas the diesel prices surges Rs. 67.1The unending surge in fuel prices entered its 17th consecutive day on Tuesday with the prices of both petrol and diesel receiving yet another hike. The latest hike has almost eliminated any difference between the per litre price of petrol and diesel in Delhi after the former was hiked by 20 paise while the later received a 55 paise uptick.

Petrol prices have shot by almost â‚¹8.50 per litre while diesel prices have gone up by close to â‚¹9.77 per litre in the last 17 days after oil companies ended the 83-day hiatus in the process of daily price revisions. In Delhi, a litre of petrol now costs â‚¹79.76 while diesel is only 36 paise cheaper at â‚¹79.40 per litre.
