In the viral video, the groom, Rayad can be seen unpacking the gift to reveal a container full of petrol, he then poses with it surrounded by his friends.
“That was our way of telling the government at the centre to see that the common man is not burdened by increasing the price of petrol. Price should be brought down,” Mohasin later told TOI.
While the oil marketing companies (OMC) continued to pause fuel price revision for the eleventh consecutive day, the longest period in weeks. However, Petrol prices in all metros have now crossed Rs 100 per litre mark.
According to an Indian Today report, in Telangana state’s capital Hyderabad, the price per litre was Rs 105.83 and in Sangareddy it was sold at the rate of Rs 106 per litre.
One of the main reasons for pause in fuel price rise is an over 10 per cent fall seen in global oil prices with benchmark crude sliding to $69 a barrel from a high of over $77 a barrel just couple of weeks back. It had again risen close to over $75 a barrel on strong demand projections.
With no change in prices on Wednesday, in the national capital, petrol continues to be sold for Rs 101.84 per litre, while diesel is also being sold at the unchanged price of Rs 89.87 a litre.
