Trinamool Congress, the dominant party in West Bengal, has criticized Prime Minister Narendra Modi for raising the price of home cooking gas, alleging that he is indifferent to the suffering of his subjects.
The cost of cooking gas was increased by 50 on Wednesday, the third rise since May due to rising energy costs internationally.
“Prices for domestic 14.2 kilogram LPG cylinders rose by 50 cents each cylinder. Mr. Narendra Modi is once again showing his devotion to the Indian people “the TMC tweeted on its official account.
The party made a sarcastic reference to the PM Cares Fund. “In “Amrit Kaal,” a work of Modi Ji, pain continues. The PM, too? lacks concern “.
According to a price announcement from state-owned fuel merchants, non-subsidized LPG now costs $1,079 per 14.2-kg cylinder in Kolkata, up from $1,029 earlier.
Since the government only allowed impoverished recipients who received connections via the Ujjwala system to receive subsidies, common families must pay non-subsidized prices for the cooking gas they purchase.
The LPG rate was raised for the third time since May and the fourth time this year. On March 22 and May 7, the price per cylinder was increased by 50 yen. On May 19, prices increased by $3 per cylinder.
