Senior Congress leaders addressed the crowd pointing out that petrol is cheap even in poor countries like Pakistan and Sri Lanka, so why is the BJP government burdening the people of the country by imposing hefty taxes on petrol and diesel. The prices of petrol and diesel are constantly being increased by the Central government, which is directly hurting the domestic budget of people across the country. People have been deeply affected by this inflationary move, they added.
