Patel, Pawar to hold talks with govt on petrol price
Mumbai: Stating that the common man should get relief from the high petrol prices, Union Minister Praful Patel on Saturday said that he and NCP chief Sharad Pawar would soon hold talks with the government on the issue.
"There is an immediate need to provide relief to the common man. Sharad Pawar and myself will hold talks with the government. We have not happily accepted the hike in fuel prices," Patel told reporters here.
He was replying to questions as to why the NCP has not taken as aggressive a stand as the one taken by West Bengal Chief Minister and chief of Trinamool Congress Mamata Banerjee.
Patel also said people could be given relief by relaxation in taxes and cross subsidy.
