Yeh Toh Hona Hi Tha! Roll Back Fuel Price Hike : Yuri


Panaji :

Yeh Toh Hona Hi Tha! Lok Sabha elections over and insensitive BJP Government increases VAT on fuel. Petrol price hiked by Rs.1 per Litre and Diesel 36 paise per Litre. Roll back hike immediately. Chief Minister Dr. Pramod Sawant must stop Wasteful Expenditure on Events and adopt Austerity Measures, stated Leader of Opposition Yuri Alemao.

Government wants to break the backbone of the common people. Recently they hiked the power tariff; today there is a hike in fuel prices. The reaction of the Chief Minister Dr. Pramod Sawant that there will be no impact on the people due to power tariff hike exposes the anti-poor agenda of the BJP Government, said Yuri Alemao.

I am not surprised with the fuel price hike made by the most corrupt BJP Government. Their focus is on making fortunes by spending multiple crores on events. This hike is to collect funds and spend on organizing more events as the State Treasury is gone empty. BJP Government is not bothered about the hardships of the common people, charged Yuri Alemao.

I want to remind the Chief Minister Dr. Pramod Sawant who claims to be the “Political Heir” of former Chief Minister late Manohar Parrikar who had assured Goans of keeping the petrol prices below Rs. 60 per litre by cutting the VAT. Unfortunately, Dr. Pramod Sawant has done exactly the opposite by increasing the VAT, stated Yuri Alemao.

We will protest if the Government does not roll back this hike. I hope the better sense will prevail and the Chief Minister Dr. Pramod Sawant will not compel the Goans to come on roads, said Yuri Alemao.
