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.

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.
