NEW DELHI, Feb 27: The Congress on Saturday chided the Modi government as the most "mehengisarkar," (costliest govt) for the people, taxing them heavily, left, right and centre, earning over Rs 21.5 lakh crore by imposing additional excise duty on petrol and diesel over the last six years.
Its spokesman Abhishek Manu Singhvi told a Press conference here that this "arrogant" government refuses to acknowledge the people's problems or give them any relief, but only adopt five favourite Ds of the famous "Do" (two) government of "hum do, hamare do." The five Ds are: Divide, deceive, dupe, distract and delude, he said.
He pointed out that in the international market, Crude oil is 39.2 percent cheaper but the Petrol and Diesel are 27.5 and 42.2 percent costlier in India. He asked the government to roll back the additional "Modi tax" of Rs. 23.78 and 28.37 per litre on Petrol and Diesel respectively. The reduction will make petrol price Rs 67.39 per litre and diesel Rs 53.10 per litre, he said.
Singhvi said the government even did not spare the housewives by jacking up the price of the domestic gas cylinder by Rs 200 in the last three months while consistently lying about subsidy on the LPG cylinder. The harsh reality is that the LPG's market and controlled prices are the same.
