NATION: The country is reeling under skyrocketing hike in fuel price which has created a sense of ruckus in the minds of citizens, the hard-earned pocket seems torned and ripped, entangled with dilemmas, whether to use the penny for daily bread or transport, the nation in entirety has lost its hope to witness the promise of Modi's "Ache Din" when a BJP state Minister like Upendra Tiwari poured his opinion defending the central government stating " 95% of Indian doesn't need the usage of petrol"
“The government has given free Covid-19 vaccines to more than 100-crore people. It has given free treatments for Covid and distributed medicines door-to-door. If you compare with other states, then the (fuel) prices haven’t been raised that much in Uttar Pradesh and the country,” Tiwari was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
On the question regarding the hike in fuel price, Tiwari was further heard saying, “They haven’t been raised. As compared to the per capita income, the prices of petrol and diesel are quite low as of now.”
Defending the fuel price hike across the country, Upendra Tiwari on the 21st of October stated that only a handful of people use four-wheelers and need petrol. He added that 95 per cent of the people do not need petrol.
The statement went viral across social media igniting storms of comments and posts from the despondent citizens reeling under the grave fuel hike.
"let him swim in the Ganga", "our body is full of water so our body doesn't need water "etc such comments poured in which reflected the anguish among the countrymen.
What's the Update?
Slamming the government, Gandhi tweeted, "GOI is playing a cruel joke on our public."
He used the hashtag 'TaxExtortion' and shared a social media post which said that a new word -- Fillionaire (One who cannot afford a full tank in India) -- has been coined, courtesy "Modi government's fuel loot".
However, a response from the central government on the fuel hike is awaited.
Tera Baaf ka naukar hai kya 95 % log. Then your government must also not impose any Tax on this 95 %
