The Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) strongly denounces yet another hike in the prices of petrol, diesel and cooking gas
The government is earning profits through regular hikes in the duties of petroleum products. When petroleum products were deregulated the country was told by this government that the taxes would be reduced to zero. While the oil companies pay Rs. 25.31 per litre of petrol, people pay Rs. 65.60 for the same litre.
