Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman calls fuel price hike as 'dharam sankat' for Centre

Zee News

New Delhi: Calling the inflated fuel price a `dharam sankat` (dilemma) for the government, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Friday said the state and the Centre both earn revenue on petroleum products and both sides should discuss it.

"Ideally, it is a matter which both States and Centre should discuss because it`s not just Centre which has duties on petroleum price, States are also charging. When the Centre draws revenue, 41 per cent of it goes to the state. This is a layered issue and therefore I would like both state and central to discuss together," said the Finance Minister while answering a media query during the `Indian Women`s press corps` event.
