Tamil Nadu BJP Chief Demands DMK Government To Lower VAT On Fuel Prices
K Annamalai, BJP's Tamil Nadu unit chief, questioned why DMK kept the state VAT higher than the excise duty levied by central government. He urges DMK administration to reduce petrol and diesel costs by Rs 2 and Rs 4 per litre, respectively. According to him, they should also provide a Rs 100 subsidy on cooking gas. Other states, excluding Tamil Nadu, decreased their fuel rates after Centre reduced Excise Duty.
