Nagpur: The Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM), Nagpur Mahanagar, on Wednesday staged protests in all the six assembly constituencies in Nagpur over the fuel taxes levied by the State Government. A memorandum was submitted to the State Government through Resident Deputy District Collector Vijaya Bankar.

It is a well-known fact that global crude oil prices have skyrocketed, but the Central Government has reduced the excise duty on petrol by Rs 8 and diesel by Rs 6 per litre to control inflation. This will put a burden of over Rs 2 lakh crore on the Central Government. But the Centre took this step only in the interest of the people.

Today, the Central Government levies a tax of Rs 19 and the State Government levies a tax of Rs 30 on fuel. Maharashtra is the highest taxing state on petrol and diesel in the country.
