  1. Dear readers,

    During UPA ruling the price of crude oil was $147 in December 2008 and the value of rupee was 42 against one US dollar, the price of petrol was Rs 64 per litre.

    Today the crude oil has fallen to USD/bbl.=44.471 and USD = 66.0949 INR but the Indians are still paying the same price back in UPA.

    Is this called ‘Aache Din’? Modi who is aggressively marketing for India,why is fail to pass the benefit to low oil prices for the common man? Does his government explain each liter of taxation?

    Why there are no transparency of revision of prices of fuel prices?

    Jai Hind
