"Middle class and the poor pay for the gifts the crony capitalists get," Gandhi said on Twitter.
He also used a hashtag in Hindi that translates to "Shame on a government that loots".
Gandhi also said that on May 16, 2014, when the Congress-led UPA was in power, the international crude oil price was $107.09 per barrel, while it is $40.66 on June 15, 2020, when the NDA is in government.
Despite the crude costing $66.43 less per barrel, petrol and diesel prices now are higher than what they were in 2014, he said.
Congress has been demanding that petrol and diesel prices be brought under the ambit of GST.
The opposition party has also demanded a rollback of excise duty hikes on petrol, diesel to bring down their prices.
The Congress has said the government is earning out of the pockets of the poor by imposing high taxes on petrol and diesel, depriving the common man the benefit of lower crude oil prices.
