In the time of corona, the increase in oil price is a burden for common people: Niranjan Patnaik

Bhubaneswar: The Union Finance Minister has been announcing the package every day. Reviewing it will show that this package is a way to rob everyone. Provincial Congress Committee President Niranjan Patnaik said in a press statement today that the looting was not going to take place at noon.

 

“When the price of crude oil in the international market was $ 110, the price of oil was lower than the price,” he said. But now that crude oil is priced at $ 30 per barrel, the central and state governments have been steadily raising oil prices by raising VAT. A few days back, the central government hiked prices, while from today, the state government has hiked petrol prices by Rs 3.11 per liter and diesel by Rs 1.3 per liter. Really the rate of oil was Rs 20 per liter, the central and state governments are looting around Rs 48 to Rs 52 per liter from the public. The central government was getting Rs 33 per liter, while the state government was getting Rs 17 per liter. Similarly, in diesel, the central government gets Rs 32 per liter, while the state government gets Rs 14 per liter.

It is like more burden on a burden on people. The burden is on the central government, Lalita Bida is on the state government. “It simply came to our notice then at the time of corona epidemic. They will be even more vulnerable as people go through financial hardships at times. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. Mr. Patnaik warned that people would be pushed into more misery. “Another sarpanch has been reported to be suffering from corona disease,” he said. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. So the government needs to be aware of all this , more migrants are coming to the district and those who are in charge need to be alerted. Now from Balangir, Nuapada, Kalahandi, the daily workers  those went to work on a brick factory, they all have started coming back to the state. Those districts will be in danger. The government should be careful for this according to Sri Patnaik.
