The Indian government has placed another burden on the heads of Indians who are being hunted down by skyrocketing prices of essential commodities. First Petrol & Diesel, then edible oil and now LPG cylinder prices are increasing.
In India, the 14.2 kg LPG cylinder prices have been increased by Rs 50. The new rates have been in effect since yesterday. LPG cylinder has Rs 1026 in Bhubaneswar, Rs 1026.50 in Cuttack and Rs 1049.50 in Malkangiri district.
This is the 2nd increase in LPG prices in 6 weeks. Petrol, diesel and LPG prices have risen steadily since the end of the five state assembly elections. This rise in oil prices has led to a dramatic change in people’s lives.
And the rise in the price of LPG is expected to make the middle class’s financial situation worse. The price of LPG first rose in April 2021 and then in March 2022. However, by 2021, the price of a cylinder has risen by Rs 190 per kg, which has put a burden on every Indian.
As the central government gives oil companies enough freedom, they continue to raise prices at their own will, said the general secretary of the CPI. Congress leader Rahul Gandhi also condemned the Indian government and called for a reduction in the price of LPG cylinders as soon as possible.
