Increase in prices of crude oil in international markets led to fuel price hike: Dharmendra Pradhan

On increasing fuel prices in the country, Union Petroleum and Natural Gas Minister, Dharmendra Pradhan said that it has happened due to increase in prices of crude oil in international markets.

Dharmendra Pradhan said, "Due to an increase in prices of crude oil in international markets, consumer price (for petrol and diesel) has risen.

This will soften gradually.

Global supply was reduced due to COVID in turn affecting production as well.

Sonia ji must know Rajasthan and Maharashtra have maximum tax.

Earnings of Centre and State government were negligible during lockdown.

We have allocated large chunks to various sectors in Budget to increase jobs." He further said, "We are consistently requesting the GST council to include petroleum products under its purview as it will benefit people.

But it is their call to take."

Scotland’s Leadership Has 'Failed', Salmond Tells Inquiry

Alex Salmond has said there is a failure of leadership in Scotland as he attacked First Minister Nicola Sturgeon. In his opening statement to a Holyrood inquiry into the Scottish Government's unlawful investigation of sexual harassment claims made against him, Scotland's former first minister accused his successor Ms Sturgeon of using a Covid press conference to "effectively question the result of a jury". Mr Salmond is testifying on the botched government investigation which was found to be "tainted by apparent bias" by the court. He was acquitted of 13 charges of sexual assault in a criminal trial, and he successfully challenged the lawfulness of the government investigation. The current Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has insisted there was no conspiracy against Mr Salmond, and she is due to appear before the committee to give evidence next week.
