New Delhi:07 June :- Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan said that the government is working on the overall solution to the fluctuations in prices of petrol and diesel without returning the steps on reforms. He also said that he will not let petrol and diesel out of reach of the general public. Oil, rupee exchange rate fluctuations and local taxes are attributed to reaching the record level of petrol and diesel prices.
In a press conference called to give information about the achievements of his government, Pradhan said that the government is sensitive about it and will ensure that poor, middle class is not suffering. “We will deal with the issue.” He said, “The government will adopt the overall approach to tackle the situation so that the prices of petroleum do not go away. The government will take every possible step.
Asked whether its solutions include some changes in the control-free fuel price system. Pradhan said, “Not at all. This question does not arise. The government is a supporter of reforms and the improvement we have made is not a question of retreating. ”
The government liberated petrol prices in June 2010 and diesel was approved in June 2014 for the price review on daily basis in June last year. He said, “We will not let the prices go beyond the reach of the common people.”
Pradhan denied that the solutions that are being discovered can be asked to take some burden from oil producing companies like ONGC so that fuel can be made cheaper. He said, “I can not discuss the solutions which are being considered.”
COMMENTS Principal said that a framework is being set up to link the money scheme with skill development. Under this, in the July-September quarter, one lakh youth will get targeted self-employment.
