Chief Minister expresses gratitude to Prime Minister for reducing the excise duty on petrol and diesel

Prime Minister’s decision is in the interest of the people of the country: Chief Minister

Chandigarh, May 21 – Haryana Chief Minister, Sh. Manohar Lal expressed gratitude to the Prime Minister, Sh. Narendra Modi, for reducing the fuel prices and announcing a subsidy of Rs 200 to the beneficiaries of the Ujjwala Scheme. The Chief Minister said that on one hand, when the world is surrounded by so many problems, this decision has been taken in the interest of the citizens of the country, especially the poor. Chief Minister, Sh. Manohar Lal also expressed gratitude to the Union Finance Minister, Smt. Nirmala Sitharaman for the same.

Significantly, on Saturday, the Central Government has announced to reduce the excise duty on petrol and diesel. This will reduce the price of petrol by Rs 9.5 per litre and diesel by Rs 7 per litre. At the same time, a subsidy of Rs 200 per gas cylinder has also been announced to the beneficiaries of Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana. Reacting to this decision, Haryana Chief Minister, Sh. Manohar Lal said that I urge to the governments of the States being ruled by Congress and other parties, who are playing politics on fuel prices to now reduce the fuel prices for the people of their state while taking advantage of this decision of the Central Government. He added that earlier when a similar decision was taken in November 2021, the non-BJP ruled state governments had deprived the people of their state of it.

Muniraj Kashyap was a philanthropist and he also followed the religious policy and used to exhort others to follow the same policy. Kashyap Muni used to preach continuously, due to which he got the title like 'Maharishi'.

Maharishi Kashyap never supported unrighteousness. He was devoid of hatred, philanthropy, character and Prajapalak.

According to Maharishi Kashyap, 'charity, kindness and action - these are the three best religions and without charity, all work and austerity are useless.'

Maharishi Kashyap composed a great book like 'Smriti-Granth' to give a new direction to society. Apart from this, Maharishi Kashyap achieved immortality in the three worlds by composing 'Kashyap-Samhita'.

The Chief Minister said that Maharishi Kashyap was the true guide of society. He gave a new direction to society.

"We should move society forward by following his teachings," he added.

Sh. Manohar Lal said that the Yashogatha of the important contribution made by Maharishi Kashyap in the creation of the entire universe is described in our Vedas, Puranas, Smritis, Upanishads and many other religious kinds of literature.

"We all should bow down to such majestic, great yogi, among the seven sages and the creator of the universe, Maharishi Kashyap Ji, "said Sh. Manohar Lal.
