Panaji: The government is worried about the rising fuel prices, Union Minority Affairs Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said here on Sunday.
"Along with the people, even we are worried when the price of petrol, diesel, LPG, increases. When our party was in the opposition, we had opposed any hike in petroleum because the price of the crude oil was very low in the world market.
"As far as the current hike is concerned, the Petroleum Minister has clearly said we are working in that direction (to ease it) and that it is a worry," he said in response to a question from the media here.
Naqvi was in Goa as part of the ruling BJP's 'Transforming India' campaign under which senior leaders have fanned out across India to amplify the achievements of four years of the Modi government.
