Accusing the BJP government of financial mismanagement and failure to combat  inflation, senior Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader and Rajya Sabha Member Raghav Chadha on Monday said that prices of petrol have been hiked 78 times and 76 times of diesel across the country in the past one year by the Union government, even as revenue from petroleum was a whopping Rs 4.92 lakh crore in 2021-22.

Citing these figures from a reply to his question tabled in Rajya Sabha, by the government, MP Chadha, said that this is clear evidence of the government's financial management. He said that the government's reply stated that the  prices of petrol were hiked by 78 times and that of diesel  76 times in the last one year.  

Quite surprisingly, as against the steady increase in fuel prices, the number of times that prices were  reduced was only 7  and 10 times for Petrol and diesel respectively in the same period (2021-2022).Tweeting these figures Chadha, said, "In the Parliament, I had asked the central government how many times the price of petrol has been increased in the last one year. 

You will be surprised to know that in the last one year, the price of petrol has been increased 78 times and the price of diesel has been increased 76 times. This is a blow on the common man."Chadha said that the BJP-led Union government had collected a colossal Rs 4,92,303 crore revenue in 2021-22.

 The BJP government had witnessed Rs 1.5 lakh crore rise in revenue as compared to 2019-20. Despite these staggering collections,  the government is relentlessly putting a burden on the poor and common people by increasing fuel prices instead of giving financial relief to people reeling under inflation, he said. 

Lashing out at BJP led Union government, MP Chadha said that the BJP government's continuity, consistency, and coherence is restricted to achieving phenomenal and extraordinary heights of inflation only. He said that the union government miserably failed to control inflation as fuel, milk, and eggs prices up at the fastest rate in 40 years.

Chadha said that the central government is least concerned about the well-being of common people and only focused to give favours to their some 'friends', who are becoming richer and richer every day, Chadha added.
