NEW DELHI: Prices of petrol and diesel were cut by one paisa on Wednesday, the first ‘reduction’ after 16 days of relentless price hikes. This cut is fuel prices has given Twitter users a field day with some mocking the move saying it has made them so rich that they are going to hit the mall for shopping, while for some it was an “insult”.
Congress President slammed the cut saying if this was Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s idea of a “prank”, it was “childish and in poor taste”.
Taking to Twitter, Rahul said: “Dear PM, You’ve cut the price of Petrol and Diesel today by 1 paisa. ONE paisa!?? If this is your idea of a prank, it’s childish and in poor taste.”
He further said the “one paisa” cut was not a “suitable response” to the fuel challenge he threw at Modi.
“A ONE paisa cut is not a suitable response to the #FuelChallenge I threw you last week,” he said.

Rs 4 hike in petroleum prices hurts but not as much as one paisa cut. It’s just plain insulting.

I am worried that today’s reduction in fuel price might increase the consumption and lead to increased global warming!#OnePaisa
