Destruction for all: Rahul Gandhi on rising fuel prices

New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has hit out at the Union government over the increasing prices of petrol and diesel, alleging that there was ‘destruction for all’ and development of ‘rising prices’.

Posting a news report that claimed that petrol would have been Rs 66 per litre and Rs 55 for diesel, Rahul Gandhi tweaked ‘Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas’ slogan.

‘Sabka vinash, Mehengaai ka vikas (destruction for all, development of rising prices),’ Rahul tweeted in Hindi using the hashtag TaxExtortion.

Meanwhile, Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi tweeted, ‘With daily hikes, the Government has made the diesel prices cross Rs 100. Under the BJP rule, workers and farmers are reeling under the burden of rising prices, while only Modi’s friends are getting richer.’
