These are the ten BJP-ruled states – Assam, Tripura, Manipur, Karnataka, Goa, Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Haryana. The Center has already cut excise duty on petrol and diesel by ₹5 and ₹10 on the eve of Diwali. The opposition ruled states are yet to reduce the taxes levied by the state government to the consumers.

Amit Malviya questioned the West Bengal government and questioned, "Mamata Banerjee, who spoke eloquently about fuel prices, had in the last one year increased State levies on both petrol and diesel sharply, while the Center had not. Now that the Center has slashed excise, will she reduce State levies and make Deepawali happy for West Bengal?"
