Earlier, Pradhan blamed the international market for the hike in the prices of petroleum products.
The public in parts of India has blamed and urged the central government to come up with a plan to tackle the problem of ever-rising fuel prices, as petrol price is hovering over four-year peak and diesel is at an all-time high.
