Fuel Prices Increased. Left declares Bharat Bandh on Monday

Increasing Continuously Fuel prices reach new high

Petrol prices on Tuesday touched a scorching Rs 90.11 in Maharashtra's Parbhani while diesel prices also increased from Rs 77.92 to Rs 78.06, Parbhani District Petrol Dealers Association (PDPDA) President Sanjay Deshmukh said.

Addressing the Assembly, chief minister Naidu said the value added tax on diesel and petrol are being slashed by half from Rs 4 a litre now, causing Rs 1,120 crore of additional burden on the exchequer of the already financially crippled state. The government is of the view that a weak rupee along with high global crude oil prices can impact fiscal deficit as well as current account deficit. The price in other metros are: Delhi - Rs 80.73; Chennai - Rs 83.91; and Kolkata - Rs 83.61.

In the 13 days between August 29 and September 10, petrol and diesel prices have risen daily; in the case of petrol from Rs 81.45 to 84.06, and in the case of diesel from Rs 74.74 to Rs 77.98.

However, the Bahujan Samaj Party and the Samajwadi Party did not join the Opposition protests in Delhi. The nationwide bandh affected the bus and train services.

In response to BJP's data, the Congress party also published its own infograph. Since mid-August, petrol price has risen by Rs 3.24 a litre and diesel by Rs 3.74 per litre as rupee hit record low against the U.S. dollar, making imports costlier.

With 21 parties extending support to the Congress' call for the Bharat bandh, it tried to project the shutdown as yet another show of strength by a united Opposition. "Today he is the Prime Minister and says nothing".

Norman reduced to a tropical storm
Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 30 miles from the eye and tropical storm-force winds extend up to 115 miles. A tropical storm could bring heavy rain and flooding, especially in places that are saturated from previous storms.

Manmohan Singh hit out at the BJP for "miserably" failing to control fuel prices.

Maharashtra is among those states where petrol, diesel prices are the highest in India.

Law minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on Monday blamed Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) for the surge in worldwide prices of crude and said that the solution for the fuel price hike in not in government hands.

Addressing the Legislative Assembly, the AP chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu accused the BJP government at the centre for not considering to reduce fuel prices despite earning large sums through various taxes.

Meanwhile, the BJP said the hike in fuel prices was a "momentary difficulty" and claimed the shutdown was a complete failure.
