Gas price woes

gas priceThe Kejriwal government may have escalated tempers by lodging a case with the Anti-Corruption Branch regarding the gas price hike, but it wasn’t the first one. PILs on the issue were filed earlier by CPI MP Gurudas Dasgupta and NGO Common Cause in the Supreme Court, alleging that petroleum minister M Veerappa Moily had helped Reliance Industries Ltd to shore up gas prices produced from its KG -D6 offshore gas field. The government took the decision to double the price of locally-produced natural gas in June last year and the hike will be effec tive from April 2014.
The apex court has said that the hike is subjec t to its decisions on pending PILs which will be taken up in the first week of March.
