New Delhi:09 Feb 21 A jibe floating on social media featured in Parliament today as the government faced questions on soaring fuel prices. An opposition MP questioned why the prices of petrol and diesel were lower in neighbouring countries like Nepal and Sri Lanka.”Petrol is cheaper in Mother Sita’s land Nepal and Ravana’s land Lanka.
