Even though the Congress-led UPA Government has increased the CNG prices 19 times in as many months by about 47 per cent, Gujarat Government expressed its readiness to lower its prices by 30 per cent if the Centre allocates CNG to Gujarat as per the Administered Price Mechanism (APM) and KG basin formula.

The government spokespersons-ministers Jay Narayan Vyas and Saurabh Patel here today squarely blamed the Centre for the hike in CNG by the Central PSUs like IOC, BPL and HPCL from Rs.9.34 per scm in October 2009 to Rs.13.69 per scm in April 2011. It amounts to a rise ranging from Rs.1.15 per to Rs.1.79 per kg each time.

The spokespersons said it is entirely the UPA misdoing and the Congress is to be squarely blamed for the unfair treatment meted out to Gujarat. While the Centre allocates CNG at administered prices as per KG basin formula to the Congress-led states like Maharashtra and Delhi and to Metros like Mumbai, the former singles out and forces only Gujarat to buy imported gas from the Central firm Petronet at higher prices.

The ministers said that the price hike is triggered by the Centre and yet the Congress paper-tigers continue to spread anti-Gujarat canard to mislead the public. They suggested the Congress leaders from Gujarat should better rise above the party politics and plead the State’s case at the Centre for the welfare of the people.

I will be visiting USA from 22-25 September, 2021 at the invitation of His Excellency President Joe Biden of the United States of America

During my visit, I will review the India-U.S. Comprehensive Global Strategic Partnership with President Biden and exchange views on regional and global issues of mutual interest. I am also looking forward to meeting Vice President Kamala Harris to explore opportunities for cooperation between our two nations particularly in the area of science and technology.

I will participate in the first in-person Quad Leaders’ Summit along with President Biden, Prime Minister Scott Morrison of Australia and Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga of Japan. The Summit provides an opportunity to take stock of the outcomes of our Virtual Summit in March this year and identify priorities for future engagements based on our shared vision for the Indo-Pacific region.

I will also meet Prime Minister Morrison of Australia and Prime Minister Suga of Japan to take stock of the strong bilateral relations with their respective countries and continue our useful exchanges on regional and global issues.

I will conclude my visit with an Address at the United Nations General Assembly focusing on the pressing global challenges including the Covid-19 pandemic, the need to combat terrorism, climate change and other important issues.

My visit to the US would be an occasion to strengthen the Comprehensive Global Strategic Partnership with USA, consolidate relations with our strategic partners – Japan and Australia - and to take forward our collaboration on important global issues.
