BJP vs Congress fuel price war: Social media trolls saffron party
New Delhi : A fuel price battle has shifted from roads to social media as BJP tried to explain the real reason behind price rise via infographics on Twitter.
The BJP posted an infographic on social media to clarify price rise. According to the infographic, if we see the percentage rise in fuel price, the NDA government has performed better than its predecessor UPA.
The tweet, however, turned against the saffron party as Twitteraties started trolling the party. Congress' official twitter handle also trolled BJP for the infographics.
When you have to hide a 343% increase in taxes, but don't know how.— Congress (@INCIndia) September 10, 2018
Even we couldn't resist retweeting this ;) https://t.co/ulDKp17sVy
Notice the 'Even we couldn't resist retweeting it' jibe that BJP used while sharing Rahul Gandhi's tweet a while back.
Congress then tweeted another infographic allegedly telling BJP the correct figures behind petrol price rise.
According to Congress's tweet, from May 16, 2009 to May 16, 2014 when the petrol prices rose from Rs 40.62 to Rs 71.41, the crude oil prices also went up by 84 per cent. Similarly, between May 16, 2014 to September 10, 2018 the crude oil prices decreased by 34 per cent.
