Jaipur: Rajasthan Congress chief Sachin Pilot on Monday demanded that the Centre and the state reduce excise duty and the VAT on petrol and diesel.

Pilot said that crude oil prices in the international market had reduced drastically than it was when the UPA was in the Centre, but the present government was looting the people of their hard earned money by revising prices of petrol and diesel everyday.

He alleged that the BJP government had burdened people by levying more taxes on petrol products.

In Jaipur, petrol and diesel price recorded a rise of nearly Rs 2 and Rs 1.98 respectively from 11 May.
