On 5th of July, reacting to a tweet of a twitter user who shared about the news byte made by Polimer news channel on State government being responsible for the massive hike in the petrol price hike, Tamil nadu finance minister Palanivel Thiaga Rajan requested public to share a copy of the video clip of the news report made by Polimer.
The massive hike in the petrol and diesel prices left people of the country devastated with Internet users slamming the union government with trolls and criticisms. On July 3rd, Saturday, Petrol and diesel prices remained unchanged across the four metro cities, as per the data released by the Indian Oil Corporation. On Monday, petrol and diesel prices have been hiked again for the second consecutive day. Petrol and diesel prices across the country have been increased by 35 paise and 36 paise respectively. Petrol cost in Mumbai is the highest among metro cities, retailing at ₹105.92 per litre, while a litre of diesel costs ₹96.91.
As of today, petrol price in Tamil nadu is Rs.100.93 per litre. On Saturday, Polimer news channel published a report saying that the union government is selling the petrol for just Rs. 52 and it is the state government that charges tax and selling it for Rs.100. Watch the video below :

Public Service Request:— Dr P Thiaga Rajan (PTR) (@ptrmadurai) July 5, 2021
If Polimer News @polimernews has actually made such a statement, I’d be very grateful for a copy of the video clip
Now, he came up with a clarification saying that Oil companies are fixing the price for Petrol after the final decision of Union government on Petrol price. He further said that the information on Union government’s price for petrol is Rs. 52. 75 is completely fake. “Union government can only levy the tax. Cess = 31.50 + Excise = 1.40. Totally Union government levies 32. 90 as tax. In the excise tax, 42 % (58 paise) belongs to states. Polimer news has been exposed as they have tried cheating people by manipulating a fact that is known for all” PTR’s tweet read.

3. ஒன்றிய அரசு வரி மட்டுமே விதிக்க முடியும்.— Dr P Thiaga Rajan (PTR) (@ptrmadurai) July 5, 2021
செஸ் 31.50+எக்ஸைஸ் 1.40 = 32.90 ஒன்றிய அரசு வரி விதிக்கிறது. இதில் எக்ஸைஸ் வரியில் 42%(58பைசா) மட்டுமே மாநிலங்களுக்கானது.
வெளிப்படையாக தெரிந்த உண்மையை மாற்றி மக்களை ஏமாற்றும் @polimernews-ன் பொய்முகம் அப்பட்டமாக வெளிப்பட்டுள்ளது.
Through the video, PTR also warned Polimer news, saying that spreading fake news among public is punishable crime.
