Prime Minister Ashok Jahlot has targeted the central government due to the high prices of petrol and diesel in the country. CM Gehlot tweeted today that despite the drop in the price of crude oil on the international market, the price of gasoline and diesel is steadily increasing. In many states, the price of gasoline has exceeded 100 rupees per liter.
On the one hand, the common man is troubled by Covid and low income, while on the other hand, the Modi government is making it difficult for him due to inflation. The central government is constantly lowering the excise tax on petrol and diesel, as the states have been getting their share, but the special excise tax and the additional excise tax in which the states do not get their share constantly fill their pockets.
One-third of the central government’s income is derived from the gasoline and diesel tax. When the central government should have eased the ordinary citizen by lowering the tax on gasoline and diesel, a new tax was imposed on them in this year’s budget. This has resulted in an increase in transportation fees, due to high inflation on everything. The common man is fed up with this inflationary trap that the Modi government has woven.
