They will have to pay more taxes on petrol diesel. It is revealed that because of the rising prices of petroleum products, it has come to light that due to the high rates of VAT and the high rates of excise duty by the Central Government and the state government, the petrol and diesel has become more expensive.

Ayupp Analysis:

The central minister forgot that the poor people also travel around and he has to use this car or bikes for transportation and continues increase in Petrol and diesel will lead to rise in cost of other daily needs of the common people and the poor. The central minister forgot to understand this logic.
