Petrol prices have touched an all time high in India. The cost of 1 litre of petrol in New Delhi, India is over Rs 80, while the cost of diesel stands at Rs 72. The Indian National Congress and other parties in the opposition had also called for a Bharat Bandh to protest against the Government of India’s move of increasing the fuel prices in India, to no avail.
