Petrol prices have touched a record high in the country. This has heated up the debate on fuel price hike in India like never before. The impact of rising fuel prices is clearly visible on social media. The opposition claims that the government has failed to pass on the benefit of the fall in prices of crude oil in the international market to the citizens of the country. The government, on the other hand, maintains that some steps taken by the previous UPA government have led to the price rise now.
Despite all the clarification and explanation, the Modi-led government continues to face massive criticism for the rise in prices of petrol and diesel. Amidst all the hush-hush, the BJP tweeted infographics showing a comparison between the rise in prices during the UPA-led government., and it’s own government.
Recently, the BJP committed a blunder in the infographic and ended up getting massively trolled for the same. Ever since the recent rise in petrol prices, social media users have also discussed the issue at length.
The rise in petrol prices has also become a subject of jokes and memes on the digital platforms. Amidst all this, some people have suggested ingenious ways to save petrol while some others have tried to take advantage of the rise in fuel prices in their own way.
