The YSR Congress (YSRC) on Saturday demanded that the Central government roll back prices of diesel and instead, focus on infusing efficiency in the functioning of the oil companies.
YSRC central governing council member M.V. Mysoora Reddy criticised the Centre for “trekking the easy path” of hiking prices rather than reviewing the performance of oil companies and rectifying the deficiencies. Hike in diesel prices would result in a cascading impact on other areas, including the RTC charges, thereby burdening the common man. blem. “There is a need to regulate oil companies, frequent hike in prices is not a long-term solution,” Dr. Mysoora Reddy said. On the other issues, he asserted that the chances for Congress were “bleak” in the 2014 elections as the people rallied behind Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy. The party had the capacity to go it alone in the coming elections, he said.
