BHOPAL: Petrol and diesel prices in Madhya Pradesh have been increased, 45 and 42 paise, respectively, on Tuesday nearly after two months.

The fuel prices were hiked after the results of high-pitched assembly elections in four states and a Union Territory were announced on Sunday.

Madhya Pradesh Petrol Pump Dealersí Association president Ajay Singh said, "State-run oil marketing companies (OMCs) aimed to recover losses incurred by keeping rates artificially lower for almost two months due to the assembly elections. It was long pending for OMCs so they have increased the prices."
