Union petroleum minister Hardeep Singh Puri on Friday said fuel price hike under the Narendra Modi government had been the lowest and the Prime Minister was consistent in his advocacy of cooperative federalism regarding livelihood of citizens.He further said states were making a killing from revenues of petrol, diesel and alcohol and when the debt arose, they blamed others and cited Punjab as an example. "My understanding is the Centre would be happy to bring petrol and diesel under GST… Fact is states aren't willing to do the same. They make a killing from revenues of petrol-diesel and alcohol… when debt rises they blame others… Punjab is an example." In this episode of the Editorial, our Managing Editor Mr Sujit Nair shares his take on the matter.
