Petrol and diesel prices are among the highest in the country. However, petrol and diesel prices have not changed for about a month. Responding to the question of whether oil prices will fall in the future, Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said our hands were tied. He accused the Congress government led by Dr Manmohan Singh of raising petrol and diesel prices.
Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said: We do not use UPA government tactics. The burden on us is due to the oil bond. Due to this, petrol and diesel prices cannot be reduced.
