Milind Deora contradicts Rahul Gandhi on oil pricing demand

New Delhi: The Congress has demanded the government that the oil prices should be reduced and the benefit be passed to the consumer as former Congress President Rahul Gandhi asked the government to listen to this demand. But the first sign of difference emerged as former Mumbai chief Milind Deora questioned the demand, asking who will benefit when no one was on the roads.

When car truck buses train and planes are sitting idle, consumers can’t gain from petrol and diesel price cuts

Deora said on Twitter on Tuesday: “India imports Brent crude – not WTI – currently priced at $21 per barrel. We will import less oil due to weakened demand. Falling rupees may also offset gains from low oil prices.

“Lastly, when car truck buses train and planes are sitting idle, consumers can’t gain from petrol and diesel price cuts.”

The Congress has demanded that after the crude oil prices hit the lowest in its history, the government should pass the benefit to consumers and in this difficult time the transporters and farmers could get reprieve as in the last six years the government has already raised oil taxes 12 times and has made Rs 20 lakh crore.
