Hyderabad | 4th July 2020
Congress leaders and workers today held protest programs across the state demanding a rollback of the increase in petrol and diesel prices in the country.

TPCC president N Uttam Kumar Reddy himself took part in a protest held at the Shamshabad mandal headquarters along with party leaders and workers.

Speaking on the occasion, Reddy alleged that both the state and the union governments were acting in an inhuman manner at a time when the whole country was suffering from the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent job losses.

He claimed that the BJP-led union government had earned Rs 18 lakh crore by fleecing the public during the last six years by increasing the petrol and diesel prices.

He said that the fuel prices were within range of affordability during the UPA rule despite the fact that a barrel of crude oil was being sold at $120 at a stage.

However, despite the fact that the price of crude oil was just $39 a barrel now, the BJP government had increased the fuel prices to near all-time highs and was looting the public, he alleged.

He demanded that the union government reduce the prices of petrol and diesel immediately.

He later handed over a representation to the local tehsildar with a plea to reduce the prices.
