Government reduces fuel prices ahead of 2019 polls
GUWAHATI: The fuel prices are seeing a downward trend with prices coming down to Rs. 77.27 for petrol and Rs. 73.09 for diesel per litre as on Monday in Assam.
This drop has brought relief to the people as over the past months there was a spike in the fuel prices in the country that contributed to the rise in the price of essential commodities.
State like Maharashtra saw fuel prices skyrocket to Rs. 90 in the month of August-September.
It is to be mentioned that, with the 2019 Lok Sabha Election round the corner, the BJP-led government is keeping no stones unturned in its way to ease the life of commoners.
