Petrol, diesel prices hiked for 9th day in row

Petrol, diesel prices hiked for 9th day in row

New Delhi, Jun 15 (UNI) The prices of petrol and diesel were hiked for the ninth consecutive day on Monday, touching the highest level in more than a year.

The price of petrol was hiked by 46 paise a litre while diesel will cost 59 paise more today.

With these nine consecutive hikes, the petrol and diesel prices are now up by Rs 5 per litre and Rs 4.87 per litre respectively.

On Sunday, the principal opposition -- Indian National Congress -- in a statement demanded that the government bring the fuels under the goods and services tax (GST) and pass the benefit of lower crude prices to the people.

'Today 130 crore Indians are battling the Corona pandemic. The poor, migrant workers, shopkeepers, farmers, small and medium businesses and those who have lost their jobs are struggling to survive the economic ruin unleashed by the Modi government. But instead of reducing their burden the draconian and anti-people BJP Government is fleecing the people by not just raising fuel rates on daily basis but also refusing to share benefits of lower crude with people,' AICC In-charge Communications Randeep Singh Surjewala has said.

On Sunday, the price of petrol in Delhi was Rs 75.78 per litre after an increase by 62 paise and Rs 74.03 per litre of diesel after a raise of 64 paise.
