The fuel prices have remained unchanged for the past four months and it has stayed the same on March 8 too. However, there is a report doing rounds that claims that petrol and diesel prices are expected to spike this week as oil companies are getting ready to cut losses after they’ve kept rates steady for more than four months before the assembly elections in five states.

It is reported that the International oil prices have jumped to a 13-year high of $140 per barrel.

The news agency PTI in its report said that their sources in the oil industry say that fuel prices need to be upped by Rs 15 per litre for retailers to come back up to break-even levels.

On the eve of Diwali, last year, the central government announces an excise duty cut on fuels resulting in a sharp decrease in petrol and diesel prices across the country. The government had cut the price of petrol by Rs 5 and that of diesel by Rs 10. Following this decision, several states, mostly ruled by National Democratic Alliance (NDA) and allies have also cut the Value Added Tax (VAT) on petrol and diesel prices.

This decision was also viewed as a move for the five state assembly elections. The five states that went to the polls are Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Punjab, Goa, and Manipur.

As part of the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) campaign for the Lok Sabha Election, Union Home Minister Amit Shah will be holding a mega roadshow in Silchar, Assam today, April 21.

According to Silchar Member of Parliament (MP) Rajdeep Roy, Shah would arrive at Silchar Airport in a special aircraft at 4:10 p.m. and arrive in Silchar town via helicopter. He said, they are expecting the roadshow to start around 4.30pm.

Shah will be doing campaign work for Parimal Suklabaidya, the BJP’s nominee for the Silchar Lok Sabha seat. Following the delimitation procedure in Assam last year by the Election Commission, Silchar was designated as a reserve seat for candidates from scheduled castes. Suklabaidya, a five-term member of parliament from the Cachar district, has held several portfolios under the Assam government.

In addition to accompanying Amit Shah on the roadshow on Sunday, Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma predicted that Parimal will win by a margin of two to three lakh votes over the rival contenders.

Shah’s rally, will begin from the playground owned by the District Sports Association (DSA) in Silchar and culminate at the Chittaranjan Statue Point, according to Roy. Over a lakh of supporters will participate in the roughly 1.5-kilometer walk. During the roadshow, Shah is scheduled to deliver a speech, he continued.

Central security agencies and senior Assam police officers staged a mock drill in Silchar’s streets ahead of Shah’s rally. According to them, sufficient security has been set up before the home minister’s arrival.

According to party officials, bad weather has forced Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge to cancel his Sunday visit to an event in the Karimganj district of Assam.

The Congress party’s Rajat Chakraborty announced that Kharge’s visit has been canceled owing to Friday night’s thunderstorms and intense rain. The agencies suggested that we cancel the visit because of the high security measures required for his visit, he stated.

Rohit Sharma criticises impact player rule, BCCI reacts

India captian and Mumbai Indians star cricketer Rohit sharma criticised the impact player rule and sad that he is not a big fan of it. Now, BCCI has responded to Sharma’s comment and said that they will reevaluate the rule.

Indian Premier League (IPL) chairman Arun Dhumal also acknowledged this and said  that every decision has advantages and disadvantages, he also mentioned  BCCI is prepared to review the regulation when the current IPL season concludes.

Ahead to being established in the IPL, the impact player rule was initially put into effect in the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 tournament in 2022–2023. There have been many expert comments regarding the rule that has been in place for almost two editions of the prestigious T20 tournament, with the many of players being against it.

Since this remark has been made, they will certainly analyze it and talk to everyone concerned and then the board will take calls, Dhumal said.

Every rule that is in place has a number of advantages and disadvantages. Nothing about its execution is set in stone, so after the season ends, they are open to any discussion, he continued.

Earlier, Rohit Sharma also discussed how the impact player rule is reducing the role of all-rounders in the sport.

Sharma said, he is not a big fan of Impact sub rule. All rounders will eventually be held back because cricket is ultimately played by 11 players, not 12. To make the game exciting for everyone around you, you are taking a great deal from it. During an interew the hitman said, if the audience look just at the cricketing side of things, he feels guys like Shivam Dube and Washington Sundar aren’t getting to bowl, which is not a good thing for them as a team.

He continued saying that there are 12 players, it’s interesting, and after the team or the captain sees how the game and the pitch are playing, they might turn on the impact player. You can add another bowler, giving you a total of six or seven bowlers, if the team bats effectively and don’t lose wickets. Many teams are hitting well up front, and he hardly ever sees a No 7 or No 8 coming to bat, so the team doesn’t need that additional batter, Rohit Sharma said.
