Even this challenging situation would ease
Knowledge is power.
Our economy has been extremely poor for several quarters, further, this covid 19 has much more deteriorated our economy. Some of the economists are of opinion that our economy is going down from recession into depression and for coming out from depression more or less ten years will be required for the country. This is why government is increasing oil price and we as citizens should bear this price hike and should be ready to see more price hike in near future. However, for your satisfaction government will decrease one or two rupees in increased oil price.
It's no use thinking of protest against this price hike as government does what is best in its sight.
In AP the government increased the liquor rates by 60 to 75%. Who stopped drinking after this price increase? If we want the government to decrease the rates people should stop using those products. Then only the government will come around. But we will never do that.
Once the period has been relaxed from the lockdown, people utilised their bikes and vechiles for the different purpose. Now the government is aware of the fact despite of heavy prices of these petroleum products, people would use them in the wake of no alternatives.
Hence this sentiment is working behind it and unless we are not united on this front to protest the government, they are not likely to change their stand. Hence we should come up with our demand to resist the attitude of the government in this regard.
My view was that a small increase in fuel price will reflect as price increase in all sectors and lead to increase in cost and price everywhere.
But a statistical explanation in a post I received in Whatsapp proved me wrong. The data and statistics there showed that the price of most items was increased even when the price of fuel decreased and came very low. Though the price of petrol and diesel saw increase and decrease, many items where there was exponential increase did not come down at all.
So blaming fuel price for price rise is no longer a much valid point.
We discuss and mind the price of fuel because it was earlier regulated by government and not regulated now. But all other items were not regulated even from start and hence we were not bothering about it.
So the best now is not to mind the price of petrol and diesel from now. Do we mind and bother the regular price increase in many other essential items? We sometimes murmur a curse and pay and buy. Let the same be for fuels too from now. At least we will have one tensions less.
