    On query, the minister replied that rising prices in international markets and additional state levies have impacted fuel costs in India. The ministry is hopeful that the GST Council will agree to bring petrol, diesel, and kerosene under the ambit of GST.

    Pradhan had ridden a bicycle in Indore at the "Saksham Cyclothon" event to promote fuel saving and environmental conservation.

    The Petroleum Conservation Research Association (PCRA) and the Indore Cycling Association (ICA) claimed that nearly 30,000 cyclists participated in the event.
