Uttam explained that price of petrol has breached Rs 100 per liter mark at several places of the country. He said that this has led to rise in the prices of essential commodities. In the past 13 months the prices of petrol has been risen by Rs 25.72 per liter and diesel by Rs 23.93 per liter, he said that the prices have been raised 43 times and this is an example of the loot of the people by the Centre.
