On a day when petrol crossed the Rs. 100 mark, Prime minister Narendra Modi blamed the previous governments for not focussing on reducing India’s energy import dependence. “I do not want to criticise anyone but I want to say [that] had we focused on this subject much earlier, our middle-class would not be burdened,” PTI quoted PM Modi as saying. PM Modi further said it was a collective duty to work towards clean and green sources of energy as well as energy independence.
However, people are criticizing the current government for the immense hike in the petrol price. In a video shared by actor Siddharth, Nirmala Sitharaman could be seen saying that Union Government is the reason behind the hike in petrol prices in the year 2013. She said that the congress government in the union ministry is troubling the citizen by increasing the petrol price.
However, in a recent statement, she said “It is the oil marketing companies in India who will have to say whether they want cut it down or whether they have to go up because technically, the oil companies have been freed. Government has no control over it. It is the marketing companies which import the crude, refine it, then distribute it and put the costs for logistics and everything else”

With due respect sir, there is nothing undignified or demeaning about the word Maami. I have used the word all my life. It's what I would call her if I met her and spoke in Tamil. To me it's no different than Chacha Nehru. Thanks. https://t.co/R2P5SkJwdg— Siddharth (@Actor_Siddharth) February 22, 2021

Well said bro, this woman has had zero empathy in addressing the common man’s concern over price rises. Her statements about onions, petrol, gas cylinder, only show her total disrespect and arrogance towards the common man.— Karthik Arumugam (@theunitedsoul) February 22, 2021
