DPCC demands roll back of hike in VAT on diesel, petrol by Delhi Govt

New Delhi, Jun 17 (UNI) Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee (DPCC) president Ch Anil Kumar has demanded the immediate roll back of the hike in VAT rate on petrol and diesel, which has been pushed to 30 per cent, by Arvind Kejriwal Government as the people of Delhi are in a severe financial distress following the Covid-19 pandemic crisis and are not in a position to afford the steep hike in petroleum products.

In a letter to Mr Kejriwal today, Mr Kumar stressed that following Narendra Modi Government insensitively hiking the prices of petrol and diesel more than 10 times since the beginning of March when the people of the country and Delhi have faced unprecedented public health, economic and social challenges, the Delhi Government followed suit by hiking VAT on petrol and diesel, which has imposed an unbearable burden on the people of Delhi.
