New Delhi, June 13 : With petrol and diesel prices reaching record levels, Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan on Sunday said Congress-ruled states like Rajasthan and Maharashtra should cut taxes on vehicle fuel. However, he remained silent on whether states like BJP-ruled Madhya Pradesh and Karnataka would do the same, where petrol has crossed Rs 100 per litre. Pradhan said that if the Congress is worried about the rising burden of vehicle fuel prices on the common man, then it should cut sales tax on petrol and diesel in the states ruled by it.

Petrol has become costlier by Rs 5.72 per liter and diesel by Rs 6.25 per liter in less than the last six weeks. Auto fuel prices have reached record highs due to rising international crude oil prices and high central and state taxes. Indraprastha Gas Ltd. Talking to reporters after inaugurating the oxygen plant set up by Maharaja Agrasen Hospital, Pradhan said that the central and state governments need additional money from taxes on petrol, diesel to fight the pandemic and other development works.

He acknowledged that vehicle fuel prices were hurting consumers. Congress leader Rahul Gandhi is a constant attacker on the Narendra Modi government regarding vehicle fuel prices. To a question about this, Pradhan said why fuel is expensive in Maharashtra, Rajasthan and Punjab. “If Rahul Gandhi is concerned about the impact of vehicle fuel prices on the poor, he should ask chief ministers to cut taxes on fuel in Congress-ruled states,” he said. BJP-ruled states like Karnataka will also do the same, where the price of petrol has crossed Rs 100 per liter due to local taxes.

Jaipur, June 13 : Congress MLA Ved Prakash Solanki has accused the Ashok Gehlot-led state government of tapping the phones of some MLAs. Without naming any of the MLAs who complained about the phone tapping, Solanki, a staunch supporter of Congress leader Sachin Pilot, said the MLAs fear being trapped by agencies. Congress MLA from Chaksu assembly constituency of Jaipur, Solanki told reporters, “I don’t know whether my phone has been tapped or not. Some MLAs told me that their phones were being tapped. I do not even know whether the state government is involved in phone tapping or not. Several officials have alerted them (MLAs) that it seems that an attempt is being made to implicate them.

He further said, “Some of these MLAs have also informed the Chief Minister about the matter.” He said that he does not know whether the MLAs have technical knowledge or not or there is any such app through which they can get their phones tapped. Information has been received. On the statement of the MLA, the opposition BJP said that the Congress is intimidating its own MLAs. BJP state president Satish Poonia tweeted, “Today again a Congress MLA is saying that ‘many MLAs are saying that their phones are being tapped, they are being spied on’, Congress should tell who are these MLAs? He said, on the lines of “So Jaa Beta Gabbar Aa Jayega”, the Congress is scaring its own MLAs. Tell Congress when Gabbar will come?

Deputy Leader of Opposition in the Assembly Rajendra Rathod said, “Gehlot government is again scaring public representatives.” The pain is evident. Do not know when what will happen…” It is worth noting that in July last year, Pilot and 18 Congress MLAs had revolted against Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot. He had leveled many allegations against the government including illegal phone tapping. During that time, Gehlot’s Officer-in-Charge (OSD) Lokesh Sharma shared some audio clips of telephonic conversations, which gave rise to these allegations.
