Fuel prices rise again, petrol nears Rs 90 in Mumbai

According to petroleum dealers in the State, compared to Friday's price, petrol on Saturday cost 41 paise more while diesel price rose 48 paise a litre.

Aday after Opposition-led Bharat Bandh, fuel prices continued to rise on Tuesday with petrol being sold at Rs 80.87 and diesel at Rs 72.97 per litre in the national capital.

The other highest centres include Nanded where petrol was retailing at Rs 89.93 per litre and diesel Rs 77.90, and Amravati Rs 89.93 and Rs 78.84. Value-Added Tax varies amongst states.

With the title "Truth of hike in petroleum prices", the ruling party with the help of bar diagrams explained that the percentage increase in the rise of fuels in 2018 is less than the increase during the previous two terms.

Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, former Congress chief Sonia Gandhi, Nationalist Congress Party chief Sharad Pawar and estranged Janata Dal (United) leader Sharad Yadav also joined the protest. "The Rs 45,000 crore belongs to the youth and farmers of the country", he said.

Calling the hike in prices of petroleum products a "momentary difficulty" due to the global crisis, the BJP on Monday condemned incidents of violence during the Bharat Bandh. The need of the hour is for different parties to set aside their differences and come together.

Petrol pumps and buses being set ablaze, putting to risk lives. Rajasthan had also reduced the taxes on both, diesel and petrol.
