Mysuru, March 17:- “The BJP government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi is looting the country,” alleged Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) spokesperson M Lakshman at a press meet held at the Mysuru Congress office here on Tuesday.
“The central government is increasing fuel prices. The government has increased petrol price by Rs 3 and state government by Rs 2. Though the crude oil price has reduced to $31 per barrel, the fuel prices are not coming down in India. Congress urges the Centre to bring petrol price under Good and Services Tax (GST). We will stage a protest condemning the central government moves in the coming days,” he warned.
Congress city president R Murthy, district president BJ Vijay Kumar, Congress leader Manjula Manasa and others were present. (MR/KS)
