PM Modi on oil price: PM Modi appealed to the states to reduce VAT on oil. He said that the state governments should give relief to the people by reducing VAT on petrol and diesel in the interest of the country. The government has already tried to reduce the prices of petrol.
The need for coordination on the economic front
PM Modi touched upon the issue of economy and said that there is a great need for coordination between the Center and the state in the matter of economy in the country. In order to reduce the burden of petrol and diesel on the countrymen, the central government had reduced the excise duty in November and urged the states to reduce the taxes as well, but some states have not benefited their people. In a way, this is a great injustice.
PM Modi took the name and said that six months ago states like Maharashtra, Bengal, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Jharkhand did not reduce VAT and people kept getting upset. But now I urge you to benefit the people by reducing VAT on the citizens of your state. Let us tell you, a few days ago, some BJP ruled states gave relief to the people by cutting VAT rates.
