Panaji: The most corrupt BJP Government headed by Chief Minister Dr. Pramod Sawant has created financial emergency in the State of Goa with its anti-people, insensitive and pro-capitalist policies. The recent increase in VAT by the BJP Government which has further increase the price of Diesel and Petrol is a proof that Lootmar BJP Sarkar has pushed Goa into bankruptcy charged GPCC Vice- President Sankalp Amonkar.

He addressed Press Conference at Congress House with GPCC Secretary Franky Peres, Kissan Morcha Convenor Abhijit Dessai, Youth Congress General Secretary Archit Naik and Cumbharjua Block Congress President Vishal Volvoikar on the rise in VAT by Goa Government on fuel prices.

The people of Goa are actually expecting relief from the Government as the Covid Pandemic has severely affected each and every household budget. The Government should have given subsidies in fuel prices, instead the insensitive Government has hiked the VAT leading to steep hike in fuel prices claimed Sankalp Amonkar.

I want to remind the BJP Government that the U-turn specialist former Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar had promised the Goans that the BJP Government will never increase the price of Petrol beyond Rs. 60/- per litre. With the current hike in VAT it is clear that the current BJP in Goa wants to completely demolish the legacy of former Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar stated Sankalp Amonkar.

The crude Oil prices in June 2014 were at 105 dollars per barrel. When the retail price was around Rs. 72/- per litre. The tax component was Rs. 24/- per litre which was 50% of the base price of Rs. 48/- per litre. Today, in February 2021, the Crude Oil prices have fallen to 50 dollars per barrel which is a slide of almost 52%. The base price has also come down by 40% to Rs. 29/- per litre. But the insensitive BJP Government has hiked the tax levy by 142% with tax component now at Rs. 58/- per litre. Effectively, the tax levy on based price is now at record 200% claimed Sankalp Amonkar.

The Finance Minister has levied an Agriculture Infrastructure and Development Cess of Rs. 2.5 per litre on Petrol and Rs. 4/- per litre on Diesel in the Budget 2021. This Government has brought the Farmers on roads but has no shame in collecting Revenue in the name of Farmers and Agriculture stated Sankalp Amonkar.
