Abir Ranjan Biswas asks if the 10-day rise by 200%-plus in kerosene price is due to Ukraine crisis
Sir, as we know, up to now, the RussiaUkraine crisis has not had a bearing on the diesel and petrol prices. But, Sir, we know that kerosene is a poor man’s fuel, and, most deplorably, the price of kerosene has gone up by more than 200 per cent from Rs. 22 per litre to Rs. 45 per litre only in a matter of 10 days. I would like to know: Is this due to Russia-Ukraine crisis?
