Nayak maintained crude oil was bought at a higher price and sold at cheaper rates in the country when Congress-led United Progressive Alliance was in power until 2014. She added the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led government is doing the opposite.

On Wednesday, the price of the domestic LPG cylinder of 14.2 kg was increased by 50. Non-subsidized LPG now costs 1,053 per 14.2-kg cylinder in the national capital, up from 1,003 previously

There was no immediate response from the BJP.
