Bharath Bandh: Babu’s 2 Rs discount

Andhra Pradesh chief minister, Chandrababu Naidu’s latest decision is coming as a small relief to the people of the state. Speaking at a recent media interaction, Babu said that the Andhra Pradesh state government will be reducing the price of petrol and diesel by 2 Rs.

Apparently, the state government will be losing 1120 crores income in the form of Value Added Taxes after this concession in fuel prices.

Interestingly, CBN took this decision today as the opposition parties in the country have called for a nation-wide bandh, protesting the hikes in petrol and diesel prices.
