Madhya Pradesh Minister Om Prakash Saklecha downplayed the rising prices of petrol and diesel by suggesting that if “there are no problems, you cannot enjoy happiness”.
“Trouble makes you realize the happiness of good times. If there are no problems, you cannot enjoy happiness,” the minister joked when asked about the runaway fuel tariffs in the country.

In the four metros – Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata – petrol prices have crossed the Rs 100 mark. According to the state-run oil refinery, gasoline and diesel tariffs are currently the most expensive in Mumbai of the country’s four metropolitan cities. Fuel rates vary between states due to value added taxes.
Saklecha blamed the media for spreading rumors when he pointed out that Prime Minister Narendra Modi failed to control the steep rise in fuel tariffs.
Mr Saklecha made a congressional comparison, claiming that the big old party took 40 years to vaccinate against polio, while Prime Minister Modi got the Made In India Covid vaccine within a year and the vaccination campaign is underway.
Gasoline and diesel prices are reviewed daily by state oil refineries and have slowly risen north.
