“Petrol prices are responsible for the record-breaking inflation. The central government is responsible for the record-breaking petrol prices. One person is responsible for breaking all the wrong records,” Gandhi said in a tweet in Hindi.
In his tweet, he also mentioned the prices of petrol and diesel in the national capital which are above Rs 100 and Rs 90 respectively.
Taking to Twitter, Surjewala said, “Ever since the Modi government was formed, prices have been increasing. The Modi government has made life difficult for the common people.
He said Rs 41.32 tax is being extracted on petrol and Rs 42.29 tax on diesel which has raised their price to Rs 101.89 and Rs 90.17 per litre respectively.
