The government should intervene and bring down high prices of petrol, diesel and domestic cooking gas so that crores of poor people are benefited, NCP MP Supriya Sule demanded in the Lok Sabha on Thursday.
Raising the issue of the price rise of essential commodities during the Zero Hour in the House, she also said cooking oil has become very expensive, pinching the common man.
The government should think of the bottom of the pyramid of society and bring down taxes on petrol, diesel and LPG cylinder so that people at large get some relief from inflation, Sule said.
