NEW DELHI:  Petrol prices rose again today pushing it to Rs. 85 in Mumbai, Rs. 80 in Chennai and Rs. 77 in Delhi. This is the 10th hike in as many days.

As vehicle owners simmered in rage, former union minister P Chidambaram claimed in a series of tweets that it was possible to cut up to Rs. 25 per litre in petrol prices, but the government will not do so.

Yesterday, BJP chief Amit Shah said the government was working on a plan to check the spike in fuel prices.

“The petroleum minister will have a meeting with the officials of the oil companies. We are trying to work out a formula to reduce the prices in the next three to four days,” Mr Shah had told reporters.
