In Delhi, petrol is now available for Rs 103.81 per litre, up from Rs 103.41 earlier, while diesel prices have risen from Rs 94.67 to Rs 95.07. Rates vary each state, depending on the extent of municipal taxation. Petrol and diesel rates in Mumbai are Rs 118.83 and Rs 103.07.

Since the conclusion of a four-and-a-half-month delay in rate revision on March 22, opposition parties have targeted the central government over the ongoing rise in fuel prices. Congress is organizing protests and marches around the country to protest price increases as part of its 'Mehngai Mukt Bharat Abhiyan.'

The Punjab government's governing Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) lambasted the Centre on Sunday for a 'exponential' hike in petrol prices, accusing it of 'looting' the population.

By repeatedly raising the prices of fuel and diesel immediately after the assembly elections in five states, the Modi administration is plundering the general masses, Punjab finance minister Harpal Singh Cheema remarked.

The country's common people are already bearing the burden of inflation. Millions of individuals cannot afford basic necessities. However, instead of offering help to the public at such times, the central government is exacerbating their difficulties by raising the costs of petrol-diesel, cooking gas, and other vital products According to a party statement issued by a top AAP leader.
