"They are just making fun of the people. After increasing the price for 16 days, they just slashed it by one paisa. What happened to the promises made by the prime minister in 2014 while campaigning for general elections?," questioned an angry resident of Delhi.
A resident of Mumbai called the rising price a tool to cheat people. "What will happen by one paisa? If the government wants, it can reduce the price, but it's not doing anything. The hike in fuel price
affects the price of other commodities as well. How are we going to manage our expenditure?," he asked.
People also took to Twitter to vent their frustration by taking swipes at the government.
