Union Min Pradhan assures govt working on long term solution to ‘fuel prices’

There have been protests against the rising fuel prices throughout the country but the governments have no practical solution in sight.

With rising fuel prices continuing to be concern for the governments going into election year, the Union Petroleum and Natural Gas Minister Dharmendra Pradhan assured that work is on to figure out a permanent solution on the issue.

There have been protests against the rising fuel prices throughout the country but the governments have no practical solution in sight.

Taking a dig at senior Congress leader P Chidambaram, Pradhan said that the solutions are not made over night.

This comes after former Union Minister Chidambaram argued that government can intervene to bring down fuel prices by at least Rs 25.

On being asked as to what measures the BJP-ruled states are taking to curb rising fuel prices, he said that there cannot be a one stop solution to all.

Meanwhile, fuel prices continued to touch another peak for the 16th consecutive day, with petrol being sold at Rs 78.43 per litre in Delhi and Rs 86.24 per litre in Mumbai.
