Union Minister for Petroleum and Natural Gas Hardeep Singh Puri took a jibe at Congress’ Bharat Jodo Yatra by advising the Grand Old Party leaders to refuel their vehicles in the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) ruled states so that they can save money.
In a thread of tweets, Hardeep Singh Puri on Friday said that Congress could save around Rs 1,050 to Rs 2,205 per diesel vehicle during their Bharat Jodo Yatra across 12 states. “A word of advice for Congress: It can take a leaf out of the common citizen’s book by refuelling in BJP served states before entering states which have turned a blind eye to fuel price reduction. For example, there’s a difference of as much as Rs 14.5/litre between Telangana and J&K,” Puri tweeted.
Adding further the Union Minister compared the diesel prices with non-BJP ruled states and gave details of money that can be saved by refuelling in the BJP-ruled states.
‘To sum up, over the course of their journey across 12 states, 3,500 km & 150 days, Congress can save between ₹1050 & ₹2205 per diesel vehicle. Given the massive entourage & convoy of luxury vehicles their ‘young’ leader usually travels with, they can thank me later for this advice,” Puri said.
