Chidambaram mocks Amit Shah for promise of curbing fuel price rise


NEW DELHI: Senior Congress leader P Chidambaram has mocked the BJP and its chief Amit Shah over assurances that the rise in fuel prices would be arrested soon. The former Finance Minister raised questions over how realistic such promises are.

Chidambaram’s chide came in a tweet on Sunday, in response to Amit Shah’s statement that the government would soon announce measures to stem the rise in fuel prices. ” “Government says will not cut fuel prices. BJP President says ‘Centre will soon arrest fuel prices’. BJP must have found a crude oil source that will supply crude oil free!” Chidambaram said in a tweet.
