Hartal byte: Kerala has higher fuel prices than metros

Petrol and diesel prices eye century household budgets clean bowled

Rajasthan and Andhra Pradesh has already cut down state taxes on both fuels. The government is of the view that a weak rupee along with high worldwide crude oil prices can impact fiscal deficit as well as current account deficit.

On the 15th day of consecutive hikes, petrol prices increased on Tuesday by Rs 0.14 and diesel by Rs 0.15, from 6 a.m, barely two days before the state's biggest 10-day Ganeshotsav festival begins. Several incidents of vandalism were also reported.

However, Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Sunday said that the state government was working on various proposals to give relief to the people from rising fuel prices.

Yadav said, "While the opposition is protesting, prices of petrol and diesel have been hiked again this morning".

However, many feel that by attributing the price hike only on global factors must be taken with a pinch of salt, the BJP government is trying to shrug away its own responsibility of bringing fuel prices under the ambit of the Goods and the Services Tax (GST).

Prominent political parties SP (Samajwadi Party), BSP (Bahujan Samaj Party), TMC (Trinamool Congress), DMK (Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam) and RJD (Rashtriya Janata Dal) backed the Bharat Bandh.

Rahul Gandhi flayed Modi for his stoic silence over rising fuel prices, tumbling rupee, Rafale fighter jet deal and agrarian distress in the country.

Here is one aspect that Left parties who are in the forefront of the nationwide hartal against the galloping fuel prices on Monday should ponder.

Meanwhile, the BJP said the hike in fuel prices was a "momentary difficulty" and claimed the shutdown was a complete failure.
