    Former Finance Minister P. Chidambaram asked why the rise in fuel prices even though crude oil price is still lower.

    Chidambaram tweeted, "Crude oil price at US $ 74 per barrel is still lower than US $ 105 four years ago. So, why are Petrol/Diesel prices higher today than they were in May 2014?" He further alleged that for the last four years, "The BJP government has lived off an oil bonanza. Minus the oil bonanza, the BJP government is clueless and floundering."
