BJP President Amit Shah said that he welcomed the decision of Modi government to reduce the petrol and diesel prices by Rs 2.50 per litre. He appreciated and also said that the decision shows the sensitivity towards the nation and its people.

BJP leaders join the Twitter thread to applaud the decision.

Piyush Goyal took to Twitter and wrote, “Thanks to PM @NarendraModi & FM @ArunJaitley, consumers have been provided relief by the slashing of Petrol and Diesel prices by Rs 2.50/litre. I congratulate CM @Dev_Fadnavis & CM @VijayRupaniBJP for further reducing prices by Rs 2.50/litre, giving a total relief of Rs 5/litre.”

 

Also, Minister of Pradhan and Natural Gas Dharmendra Pradhan also appreciated the decision and thanked PM Modi and FM Arun Jaitley to provide the big relief to the country’s common man by reducing the excise duty levied on petrol and diesel by Rs 1.50. He also said that “our OMCs will also absorb 1 rupee, resulting in an overall reduction of Rs 2.50 in prices of both petrol and diesel.”

Also, Gujarat CM Vijay Rupani wrote, ‘Finance Minister Sh @arunjaitley Ji has announced Rs.2.5 cuts in petrol & diesel prices, reciprocating positively to FM’s announcement, the Govt Of Gujarat has also decided to reduce Rs.2.50 on both petrol & diesel. Thus petrol & diesel wd be Rs. 5 cheaper in the State of Gujarat.’

In a reaction, Opposition mocked the decision of Jaitley, who announced during a press conference to cut down the price of petrol and diesel. Congress leader and former finance minister P Chidambaram said that "An oil revenue dependent-government has belatedly realised the unbearable burden on the people and indulged in tokenism." 

While other Congress leader said that the price cut will not make any huge difference in the rate of fuel price.
