Petrol price jokes: Tweeple dig up old tweets crying of petrol price when it was Rs 75. Now it is almost Rs 100, and silence

Petrol prices were hiked again by 80 paise a litre for a second straight day while domestic cooking gas LPG rates were increased by Rs 50 per cylinder.



petrol price jokes

Memory is a blight on people. Some don’t choose to look at their memories and find it convenient to look elsewhere but for the rest of us feeling the very nasty pinch of fuel prices, memory is the only thing that maybe something will change. And that prices of petrol, diesel and LPG will actually come down. Tough luck!

With petrol prices slowly inching to Rs 100, now very slowly at 80 paise and some 80 paise odd on two consecutive days. The good times have come to an end of petrol costing less than Rs 100. Before the elections for Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Uttarakhand, Goa and Manipur, it was a steady hike to Rs 110 odd. The mind forgets the trauma of it. But politics kept the rates unchanged until the BJP won the four states.

But social media doesn’t forget. It is unsparing. So now with two days of petrol price hikes, twitter champs have been scouring the timelines of the high and mighty who had been bemoaning the hike in petrol price of Rs 75 (then, but imagine petrol at that price now) under the former United Progressive Alliance government, that ruled for 10 years under the economist PM Manmohan Singh, and talking of cycles, burning their cars, two-wheelers as a showpiece and what not.

These people were not your ordinary Jai and Basanti. But actors like millionaire Amitabh Bachchan who mocked the UPA saying he asked a petrol pump attendant to spray a bit of petrol on the car to burn it. Then another millionaire actor, Akshay Kumar, said dust them cycles off, it’s time to pedal away. The other two, The Kashmir Files director Vivek Agnihotri and its actor Anupam Kher, did their bit too.

Agnihotri saw the UPA conspiracy to rev up the economy by increasing prices, ya right! Anupam Kher said he had asked his driver why he got late, the poor driver owned up that he doesn’t drive his motorcycle now since the fuel prices have blown a hole through his wallet. Tch tch tch!

The matter of wonder is whether these stars and Baba Ramdev still continue to use cars? If they do, where are those tweets bemoaning the hike in prices? Or someone is afraid of someone?

With petrol in the nervous nineties like now India coach Rahul Dravid’s bad years trying to score a hundred and getting out in the 90s, the fears of inflation are running high. Yesterday, builders in the National Capital Region wrote to Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman that they were halting construction work with the increase in construction cost by Rs 500 per square foot as raw material has become expensive.

This is not to say international fuel prices have come down. Due to the Ukraine crisis, Brent crude oil had crossed $100 a barrel quite sometime ago. But India has tied up with Russia for crude oil at a discount since it cannot sell anywhere else, because of the sanctions imposed on it by the US and United Kingdom and Europe. So, obviously, Russia is selling petrol much cheaper than the international price but the prices are still going up, yes 80 paise till now. But bad times are not far, and will these stars then wake up to what the petrol pump is selling petrol at?

Madhya Pradesh: Four men creep into coal mine to rob scrap iron, die of asphyxiation



Four men, who crept into a coal mine to allegedly steal scrap iron from the place, died of asphyxiation inside in Shahdol district of Madhya Pradesh, reports said.

According to reports, the now-deceased men broke into a closed coal mine in Kalri under Dhanpuri police station to rob scrap iron by stripping junked machines, while one of their partners stood outside to stand guard.

However, the man standing guard became anxious when his gang members didn’t return for a long time and there was silence from inside. The man fled the spot and fearing the worst, returned back and informed his friends and family of the incident.

Reports said police got wind of the incident, and sent a rescue team inside the mine who managed to pull out the bodies of the four thieves.

Police said that four men were already when the rescue team found them inside the mine.

The deceased have been identified as Raj Mahto, Hazari Koul, Rahul Koul and Kapil Vishwakarma, police said, adding that they suspect the men died due leakage of methane gas inside the coal mine.

The mine had been shut since 2018 and the four men had reportedly dug a tunnel to get inside the coal mine.

Telugu actor Taraka Ratna faints during TDP leader Nara Lokesh’s padayatra in Andhra Pradesh’s Chittoor

Taraka Ratna, who made his film debut in 2002 and has acted in about a dozen movies and web series, is reportedly keen to contest next year’s Assembly elections.



Telugu actor Taraka Ratna faints during TDP leader Nara Lokesh's padayatra in Andhra Pradesh's Chittoor

Telugu actor Nandamuri Taraka Ratna fell unconscious on Friday during the padayatra of Telugu Desam Party (TDP) general secretary Nara Lokesh in Kuppam in the Chittoor district of Andhra Pradesh.

He was immediately rushed to the hospital in Kuppam after he fainted during the Padayatra. He was later shifted to the multispeciality hospital in Bengaluru for better treatment.

Reportedly, Taraka Ratna had no pulse, and his body turned blue when he was brought to the hospital. As per the latest reports, his pulse has returned after 45 minutes of treatment. Doctors state that the actor is currently receiving medical treatment.

The incident happened when there was a stampede-like situation outside a mosque that Lokesh visited shortly after launching his 4,000-kilometer padayatra. The actor-turned-politician Ratna was also a part of the padayatra.

According to the reports, ex-CM Nara Chandra Babu Naidu’s son Nara Lokesh launched a padayatra in Kuppam on Friday, and he was accompanied by several political leaders. Ratna also accompanied Lokesh in the padayatra.

Lokesh performed a special puja at Lakshmipuram Sri Varadaraja Swamy Temple before launching padayatra and then went to the mosque where he was joined by Ratna after a brief walk. It seems that Taraka Ratna fainted while leaving the mosque, probably from suffocation from overcrowding.

Taraka Ratna is the grandson of TDP founder, legendary actor and former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. T. Rama Rao. He is the cousin of Junior NTR, Kalyan Ram and Lokesh.

Meanwhile, the padayatra will conclude at Ichapuram in the Srikakulam district after over 400 days. Andhra Pradesh is looking forward to the assembly election in the state which will be held in June 2024.

Taraka Ratna, who made his film debut in 2002 and has acted in about a dozen movies and web series, is reportedly keen to contest next year’s Assembly elections. On the professional front, he was last seen in the S5-No Exit film.
