New Delhi: Demanding petrol and diesel be included in the GST regime, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday accused the BJP of forcing fuel pump owners to go on strike despite oil prices being lowest in the national capital among the four metros.
“Oil prices lowest in Delhi amongst the four metros. Why aren’t petrol pumps in Mumbai, which has the highest prices, on strike? Because Mumbai is BJP government and BJP is behind today’s strike in Delhi. BJP must apologise to the people of Delhi,”
he said in a tweet. Kejriwal also blamed the Central government for hiking taxes on fuel and questioned it for not bringing the fuels under the Goods and Services Tax. He also accused the BJP of forcing pump owners to go on strike. (IANS)
