‘Car, bike owners not starving... have to pay for petrol’
U nion minister for IT and tourism Alphons Kannanthanam justified the rise in fuel prices, saying “somebody who can afford to pay, has to pay”. “Who buys petrol... somebody with a car, somebody with a bike. Certainly, they are not starving. Somebody who can afford to pay, has to pay,” he said at Thiruvananthapuram on Saturday.
