New Delhi, Jun 11: Attacking the Centre, Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Friday said a lot could have been done, including procuring vaccines for all, with the money collected in taxes on petrol and diesel during the COVID-19 pandemic, but nothing was done.
Congress leaders and party workers on Friday held symbolic protests at petrol pumps in several parts of the city, demanding a complete rollback of fuel price hike.
In a tweet, Priyanka Gandhi said, "During the pandemic, Modi government collected taxes on petrol-diesel: Rs 2.74 lakh crore." COVID-19 Vaccine Shortage: Priyanka Gandhi Slams Narendra Modi Govt, Says ‘Centre Owes Answer to People’.
महामारी के दौरान मोदी सरकार ने पेट्रोल-डीजल पर टैक्स वसूले: 2.74 लाख करोड़
इस पैसे से क्या मिल सकता था-
पूरे भारत को वैक्सीन (67000 करोड़)
718 जिलों में ऑक्सीजन प्लांट
29 राज्यों में एम्स अस्पताल
25 करोड़ गरीबों को 6000 रू की मदद
मगर मिला कुछ भी नहीं।#BJPLootingIndia
