Petrol price hike getting unbearable for the masses
Government continues to hike the prices of petrol to fill its kitty. An article in HT today wrote that 40% of what we pay goes as taxes and duties to the government… hardly any surprise here. Together with direct and indirect taxes, you are paying 50% or your hard earned money to the govt. and in return you get bad roads to drive on, polluted air to breath, dirty water to drink and have to face frequent power-cuts. If the govt. can break Team Anna, which comprised of highly educated lawyers and ex-bureaucrats… then how can a common man escape from this?
