Tamil Nadu BJP chief K Annamalai on Sunday issued a 72-hour ultimatum to the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) government, threatening a protest if fuel and gas prices were not reduced.

Taking to Twitter, Annamali wrote, “DMK Party had promised in their 2021 Assembly election manifesto of reducing petrol & diesel prices by Rs 5 & Rs 4 respectively & reduction of Rs 100 on gas cylinders Till now, as usual, both the promises remain un fulfilled. Our Hon PM Shri Narendra Modi is a doer.”

The BJP leader further stated that if the DMK government does not fulfil their promises within 72 hours, they [BJP] will march to the secretariat.

On May 21, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman announced a cut in excise duty. A price reduction of Rs 8 and Rs 6 per litre was announced for petrol and diesel, respectively. This will reduce the price of petrol by Rs 9.5 per litre and of diesel by Rs 7 per litre.
