[Mumbai] Mumbai Congress Holds Protest Against Fuel Price Hike
Congress activists today held a protest outside the Churchgate railway station in south Mumbai against rising prices of petrol and diesel.
Congress workers under city unit president Sanjay Nirupam demanded that petroleum products be brought under the ambit of the Goods and Services Tax (GST).
Nirupam said while crude oil prices are on downhill globally, they are skyrocketing in the country, especially in Mumbai where petrol is sold at Rs 80.80 per litre and
diesel at Rs 68 per litre.
Congress leader demanded the Maharashtra government also take up steps to bring petroleum products under the ambit of GST.
During the protest, Congress activists raised slogans against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and raised placards comparing the crude oil and petroleum prices prevailing during the previous UPA rule with the ones under the NDA government.
