Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Thursday targeted the central government over the increase in the prices of petrol, diesel and LPG and claimed that one day the people would be unhappy and end this ‘misrule’. Rahul Gandhi also shared a graph on Twitter showing the increase in the prices of ‘GDP’ (Gas, Diesel and Petrol). The Congress leader said, “The old folk tales used to tell the story of such greedy misgovernance which used to collect taxes indiscriminately. At first the people would have been unhappy but in the end it was the people who used to end that misgovernance. The same will happen in reality as well.
Significantly, the prices of petrol and diesel were again increased by 35 paise per liter on Thursday, taking their retail prices at pumps across the country to an all-time high. According to the notification issued by the public sector oil companies, the price of petrol reached its highest level of Rs 104.79 per liter in Delhi and Rs 110.75 per liter in Mumbai. Similarly, diesel is now available at Rs 101.40 per liter in Mumbai and Rs 93.52 per liter in Delhi.
The old folk tales told the story of greedy misgovernance who used to collect taxes indiscriminately. At first the people would get sad but in the end it was the people who used to end that misgovernance.

Relief on the front of wholesale inflation! Figure reached 10.66% in September
In September, the wholesale inflation rate has come down to 10.66 percent. The government has released its data on Thursday. The major reason for the fall in the wholesale inflation rate is the occurrence of food prices. However, the prices of petroleum products have seen a rise. Wholesale inflation has remained above 10 per cent for the sixth consecutive month. In August, it was 11.39 per cent. Whereas in September 2020, the wholesale inflation stood at 1.32 per cent.
The Ministry of Commerce and Industry said in a statement that the high inflation rates in September 2021 were mainly due to the consumption of mineral oil, basic metals, food items, non-food items, petroleum and natural gas, chemical and non-chemical products. There is an increase in the prices as compared to the same month last year.
