New Delhi, February 22
Hitting out at the Modi government over rising fuel prices, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Monday accused it of emptying the pockets of the common man and filling the pockets of its friends.
The Congress has accused the Centre of looting people by imposing high taxes on petrol and diesel and has demanded its rollback to provide relief to the common man from the onslaught of rising prices.
"When you see the fast moving meter while filling fuel in your car at the petrol pump, do remember that the crude oil rates have not risen but fallen," he said in a tweet in Hindi.
"Petrol is at Rs 100 a litre. The Modi government is doing the great work of emptying your pockets and filling the pockets of its friends," the Congress leader tweeted.
Gandhi also used the hashtag "FuelLootByBJP" in his tweet. PTI
पेट्रोल पम्प पर गाड़ी में तेल डालते समय जब आपकी नज़र तेज़ी से बढ़ते मीटर पर पड़े, तब ये ज़रूर याद रखिएगा कि कच्चे तेल का दाम बढ़ा नहीं, बल्कि कम हुआ है।— Rahul Gandhi (@RahulGandhi) February 22, 2021
पेट्रोल 100 रुपय/लीटर है।
