The government has been raising the prices of both domestic and commercial LPG cylinders for some time now, for which it has been slammed by the Opposition parties. Last week, Congress attacked the Centre over high LPG prices, saying two Indias have been created — one, in which a selected few are getting richer, and the other, where common people are unable to afford even a single refill of domestic LPG cylinder.
The price of domestic non-subsidised LPG cylinders has increased by Rs 153 in 2022 so far.
