On Sunday, Union minister Dharmendra Pradhan expressed his views about the rising petrol prices and said that the issue is problematic, but it can't be helped as the government is trying to procure the money for welfare schemes by rising petrol prices.

I accept that current fuel prices are problematic for people but be it central/state government, over ₹35,000 crore have been being spent on vaccines in a year. In such dire times, we're saving money to spend on welfare schemes," Pradhan was quoted by ANI." Prime Minister Narendra Modi approved ₹1 lakh crore under Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Yojana scheme to give free foodgrain to the poor for eight months.

Under PM-Kisan, thousands of crores have been directly deposited in the bank accounts of our farmers. The MSP was hiked recently. And all this is happening in the current year," he further said. Meanwhile, he  taunted Rahul Gandhi for pointing out to the ruling party on increasing prices and on that note said that he should ask chief ministers of Maharashtra and Rajasthan to reduce the petrol prices if he is so much concerned.
