In today’s budget reading, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has proposed an agricultural infrastructure and development cess of Rs 2.5 per liter on petrol and Rs 4 per litre on diesel. However, the government also claimed that the fuel prices will not change and there will be no additional burden on the consumer.
Having said that, the price of petrol and diesel is still climbing way high than any common man’s wallet. While Mumbai tops the price table in petrol with 93.20/L, Bhopal tops the table in Diesel with 84.48/L.
This increase in the prices just after the budget reading was the last thing we all wanted. So here are some Twitter reactions and memes you really need to check out before the prices get back to normal:
