Condemn one paisa, justify one rupeeLet us go back two months before. The price of petrol and diesel was increasing almost everyday. Someday the increase used to be 1 paise and on some days it was around 20 paise per litre. Political leaders from the opposition camp created terrible noise. On a day when the Government raised by price by 1 paise (per litre), Shri Rahul Gandhi strongly condemned BJP Government on Twitter. His followers praised him a lot for his tweet (although he didn't write it on his own).
After around two months or so, the Karnataka Government has slapped various levies, cess and excise duty and other taxes on petrol, diesel and motor cars. It has been calculated and found that the price of petrol and diesel would increase by Re. 1/- per litre in Karnataka due to increased taxes.
Quite naturally, the Congress leaders of the state and leaders in Delhi are giving various innovative justifications for the increase. Alas! They can't blame the previous Government for this because the previous Government was of their own party.
And Shri Rahul Gandhi! He has not tweeted his justification so far. Perhaps some others are preparing some brilliant tweets for him.
