The Congress today alleged that the "sole agenda" of the BJP government is to "extinguish hard-earned savings" of the common people, after CNG price in the national capital were hiked by Rs 1.36 per kg.

CNG will cost Rs 41.97 per kg in Delhi with effect from this midnight, Indraprastha Gas Ltd said in a statement here.

In response to the price hike, Congress communication in-charge Randeep Surjewala said on Twitter, "First they burned holes in pockets of the Common Man by increasing the Petrol-Diesel prices for the 15th day in a row! Now CNG-PNG prices also hiked in Delhi! Extinguishing hard-earned Savings of Common People is the sole agenda of the BJP! Dear Modi ji, Enough is Enough! (sic)"

While the CNG price were hiked today as input raw material got costlier because of rupee depreciation and rise in natural gas price, the price of piped cooking gas or piped natural gas (PNG) were not revised.

Petrol and diesel prices were today hiked for the 15th day in a row, taking the cumulative increase this month to the highest in at least five years.

Oil Minister Dharmendra Pradhan said the government is planning a "holistic strategy" to find "long-term solution" to spike in petrol and diesel prices triggered by a spurt in international rates.
