The petrol and diesel prices were cut for 14 consecutive days understandably on low international crude oil prices. As oil continues to be volatile, the Narendra Modi government said that they were looking for both ‘long-term’ and ‘short-term’ solutions to cushion the people against rising fuel prices.
BJP ministers Devendra Fadnavis and Nitin Gadkari and Oil minister Dharmendra Pradhan voiced their opinion in favour of bringing petrol and diesel under the ambit of Goods and Services Tax (GST). Fuel prices were deregulated in 2010 and since June 16, 2017, oil companies started revising them on a daily basis.
