AGARTALA, Oct 5 (TIWN): With 5 rupees down in petrol, diesel price in Tripura on Friday BJP supporters are almost in celebration mood. However, consumers said that they are happy with the price down but it must be more less. Huge numbers of bikers had been queued up before petrol pumps, whereas same queues were seen of diesel buyers. Diesel buyers raised question at Nagerjala fuel pump, what will happen if from tomorrow again diesel goes high ? Oppositions had demanded to implement GST on fuel as after increasing 40% fuel price since 2014, Modi Govt decreased Rs. 2.5 and State Govt further Rs. 2.5 petrol / diesel price and Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Deb has called it a "Historical Decision" whereas since 2014 Modi Govt collected Rs. 11 lakh crores from fuel taxes and fuel price is still high.Chief Minister Biplab Deb calling media marking it as "Historical Event" said, "From midnight petrol price will down at Rs. 77.36 which is right now at Rs. 82.36. Diesel price in Tripura is Rs. 75.60 which will be downed at Rs. 70.60 from midnight. It is indeed a historical decision. First of all I thank PM Modi and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley as in such a time the rate has been downed when Durga puja is knocking doors. It has relieved 37 lakhs Tripura people proving Modi Govt is Govt of people".

With unrelenting increase in fuel prices, the government on Thursday decided to effect a cut in the prices of petrol and diesel by Rs 2.50 per litre.

Finance Minsiter Arun Jaitley announced at a press conference that the cut will be effected through slashing of excise duty to the tune of Rs 1.50 per litre, while the oil marketing companies will absorb the impact to the tune of Re 1 per litre.

After CM Biplab Deb announced that it’s a historical decision, netizens have started slamming the claim. Net users and TIWN social media followers also slammed the Govt asking how govt can call 5 rupees down as historical after increasing 20 rupees price and downing 5 rupees only ??
