”It is Diwali. Prices are at their peak. It’s not a matter of sarcasm. I wish the Modi government had a sensitive heart for the public,” Gandhi said in a tweet in Hindi.
महंगाई चरम पर है।
व्यंग्य की बात नहीं है।
काश मोदी सरकार के पास जनता के लिए एक संवेदनशील दिल होता।

Gandhi and the Congress have been extremely critical of the government over the rise in fuel prices. The opposition party has accused the government of extortion in the name of taxes on petrol and diesel.
It has also charged the government with ”profiteering” from fuel tax and ”fleecing” the common people.
