While talking to media, Minister of State for petroleum, RPN Singh, said, “The oil companies were giving back their gain to the people by slashing the price.”
He said, “Oil companies are giving back their gain to the people by slashing prices by Rs 2. They will blame the government for the hike and not give credit when it’s lowered.”
According to him, “Petrol prices are deregulated which means the government has nothing to do with it. The oil companies are responsible for the hike and the lowering of prices.”
On the other hand, BJP spokesperson Rajiv Pratap Rudy said, “This is not what the BJP or the people have asked for…want complete rollback of the petrol price.”
In addition, the Left also said that Rs 2 cut is not enough and demanding the complete roll back of hike in petrol price.
Meanwhile, UPA ally Mamata Banerjee said, “I am not happy with the cut. Rs 2 cut is not enough. I want a complete rollback.”
