Cooking fuel LPG value on Wednesday was hiked by Rs 50 per cylinder. Non-subsidised LPG value was hiked to Rs 1,103 per 14.2-kg cylinder – the primary improve since July 2022, an oil firm value notification mentioned.
“The increase in LPG gas cylinders is another blow to the common people who are already suffering due to high inflation in Modi’s rule,” PCC spokesperson Swarnim Chaturvedi mentioned.
“Inflation is skyrocketing under the Modi rule and people are suffering. By increasing the rate of LPG cylinders, the government has once again proved that it has nothing to do with the interest of the common man,” he charged.
