Another Petrol Hike From 01-06-11 - Jalandhar Consumers Devastated

Instead of providing relief to the urban consumers , especially of Punjab , petrol prices at , again , set to be raised by around Rs. 1 . 50 paise per litre from 01-06-11 .

It appears that the burden of cross subsidies ( on diesel etc. ) and taxes on urbanites in  Punjab ( as petrol in Punjab is the costliest in India ) are out to devastate Urban Punjabi consumers.

Petrol consumers in Jalandhar want that instead of raising petrol prices Government should lower taxes on petrol . ( In Punjab nearly Rs. 36 per litre are collected as taxes )

People are fed up with the discriminatory taxation policies .
