There is no relief for the Aam Aadmi as the fuel prices in the country touched new heights on Monday morning, especially in Mumbai, as the petrol price in the metropolitan city crossed the Rs 90-run mark.
In Mumbai, the petrol price has touched Rs 90.08 per litre, while diesel is being retailed at Rs 78.58 per litre. Meanwhile, the prices of petrol and diesel in New Delhi are Rs.82.72 per litre and Rs.74.02 per litre respectively.
Government has blamed the rises in fuel prices to external factors and have no role in it.
Congress party had demanded that petrol and diesel be brought under GST immediately
Senior Congress leader and former finance Minister P Chidambaram had earlier on his comment on rising fuel prices had tweeted
Congress demands that petrol and diesel be brought under GST immediately.
