On Thursday, PM Modi took the metro to Dwarka, 25 km from central Delhi, where he laid the foundation stone for a convention center.
The commonly used route to reach Dwarka from the south and central Delhi is via the Outer Ring Road, which also goes toward the airport. This road, however, has been narrowed to a single lane at several stretches due to construction work. A large VVIP motorcade passing through this road would possibly create a long traffic jam.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi took a ride in the Airport Express Metro on Thursday to avoid creating traffic due to VVIP movement. The Congress, however, has found another reason behind the trip. You all know that taxes on petrol and diesel, which account for more than a third of retail fuel prices, are one of the biggest sources of income for state and central governments.
the prime minister’s 14-minute ride on Delhi Metro’s Airport Express Line, however, failed to convince the Congress that it had any benefit for anyone. The Congress brought in fuel price rise into the picture to deliver its message with a touch of sarcasm.
The party led by Rahul Gandhi has been targeting the Modi government over runaway fuel prices and had even called a “Bharat band” or nationwide shutdown last week. The government has blamed high fuel prices on the rising cost of crude oil and a weakening rupee.
Really, this type of politics is done by Congress but increasing Petrol and diesel prices like this way are very thinkable for the whole country.
