Shiv Sena did the unimaginable by distributing petrol at Rs1 at Kailash Petrol pump near Tatvagyan University. Ghodpur road in Thane valid for only 1000 first reaching customers at Mla Pratap Sarnaiks Birthday.
The action was taken by Thane Municipal Corporation’s (TMC) former corporator Aasha Dongre with Abdul Salaam and Social Worker Sandeep Dongre. 1000 motorists came to fill petrol at the petrol pump. This was also a protest by Shiv Sena denoted against the rising petrol prices in the country.
At 10 AM, a huge queue lined up in front of the Kailash Petrol Pump. Sandeep Dongre has said that around Rs. 1.2 lakhs has been paid to the petrol pump in advance to compensate for all the sales. The idea first came to the mind of Aasha Dongre who is the wife of Sandeep Also a TMC corperator. The prices of petrol and diesel have been spiking day by day and till now the central government has not taken any action. Sandeep said, “We can’t do anything more about the price hike but we can bring a smile to the common man’s face at least for one day and that’s the reason we launched this initiative of distributing petrol at Rs 1 for first 1000 motorists. Well they did bring a lot of smiles as people filled up their tanks to the brim
“Today no one is ready to see the problem faced by the common man but most of the politicians have been involved in such an issue which is not at all so important for the common man. If a resident of Thane travels for work to Mumbai by his own vehicle, then he will need to burn hole in his pocket by at least Rs 400 on a daily basis which is a costly affair. So one day if the petrol is made available for Rs 1 per litre then it will bring happiness on their face.” He further added
At present, petrol is selling for Rs. 120.58 per litre and diesel is selling for Rs. 104. 83 per litre. The price of fuel is more in Thane as compared to some other cities. For instance, in Delhi, the rate of petrol is Rs. 105.41/litre and for diesel, it is Rs. 96.67/litre.
Peaking Petrol prices in Rajisthan
In the shri Gaganagar Disrict of Rajasthan the petrol price have effectively peaked at RS 122.67 per litre ad for diesel its Rs 105.11 per litre. Because of this it has also been heard that people are travelling to Punjab to fill up their Tanks. Such venture are fine at local stages but with a wider perspective these help no body the burden of the heavy prices being held by someone else for a small while wouldn’t change anything, as the problem due to which the prices are rising is much more deep rooted.
