Petrol prices are skyrocketing. Prices have gone beyond Rs 100 in many states of the country. Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh are the two states where petrol diesel is being sold at the highest price. On the other hand, people are continuously expressing their anger through social media about the increased price of petrol. However, the Bollywood stars are very quiet, who used to speak openly at the increased price of petrol.
In such a situation, these stars are surrounded by questions, their old tweets are becoming fiercely viral, people are asking why this silence? Among the stars whose old tweets are becoming viral on social media, the first name is Akshay Kumar.
Akshay, in a tweet made about 6 years ago, was attacking the central government, ‘As petrol prices are rising, I think we should clean our bicycles to get them out on the roads now’. Similarly, he wrote in another tweet, “Petrol prices are going to increase. In such a situation, there is such a line to fill oil on the road that I am not even able to reach home at night.
At the same time, Amitabh Bachchan wrote on the increase in the price of petrol in 2012, “Petrol prices have increased by Rs 7.5. Pump attendant asked – how much should I put? The person living in Mumbai said, ‘Spray 2-4 rupees on the car, brother, you have to burn it.’ ‘
T 753 -Petrol up Rs 7.5: Pump attendent – ‘Kitne ka daloon?’ ! Mumbaikar – ‘2-4 rupye ka car ke upar spray kar de bhai, jalana hai !!’

In the same sequence, Anupam Kher wrote to the government, “I asked the driver why he came late so he said that he came by bicycle.” I asked why? So he said that I have made the car a show piece.
Asked my driver,”Why r u late?””Sir. Came by Cycle.””What happened to motorcycle.”His reply,”Sir, it is kept at home now as a showpiece.”:)

But now that the prices of petrol have reached more than 100 in the Modi government, then these stars are completely silent. People are questioning the silence of the stars and asking that when will these people speak otherwise?
Shri Akshay Kumar and Amitabh Bachhan Ji used to whine/joke about petrol at ₹65 when international crude price per barrel was $98 in 2013.
Now they’re silent at ₹100 petrol when crude is at $48.
