In an attempt to ease the pressure of rising fuel prices on the common man, the Centre announced a rate cut of Rs 2.50 per litre for diesel and petrol on Thursday. Following the announcement made by the government, four BJP-ruled states – Maharashtra, Gujarat, Chattisgarh, Uttar Pradesh and Tripura – also reduced the fuel prices by Rs 2.50 per litre.
The chief minister of Maharashtra thanked the Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley for reducing the rates of petrol and diesel, saying this will give a huge relief to the common man.
