New Delhi, Sep 10 (ANI): Union Law and Justice Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad addressed a press conference on Congress-led Bharat Bandh on Monday. The Union Minister said, “The rise in fuel prices is not in our hands. Oil producing countries have kept their productions on a low. Venezuela is experiencing political instability, Iran is manipulated by sanctions levied on it by United States, and US has still not started the production of Shell gas. If it were in our hands there would be a surplus of oil in our nation, and we are trying. For the consumption of oil we have to depend on oil imports.”
