      When they increase the prices they keep silent and when they reduce the price by just 2 rupees, they open their big mouth and say they are caring for common man. Don't fool around. Please bring this under GST if you really care for the common man. People are waiting for 2019 to show the door for BJP.

        The price revision is too late and useless at this stage and reducing rupees 2 per litre reduction is not going to solve any body’s problem. Implement gst on petrol and diesel can only help common man and check inflation

          Don’t r dice the prices of the Petrol , get them under GST , so the liquor. If you don’t do this then give explanation as why it’s not done . Every one is eyeing for the substantial reductions in fuel owing to the benifits what rest of world has got but not India . Rs two no we expect Rs twenty
