Recently a message has gone viral that says PM Modi paid back Iran’s debt. And masses were blaming Modi Government that why despite lower value of oil in the international market, the prices of oil are high in India.
The viral message said India is under the debt of money it was not able to pay for oil procured in the past. We take 5 lakh barrels per day from Iran and we owed Iran 43 thousand crore rupees as oil bill.
PM Narendra Modi paid an installment of the debt, the message said.
ABP News talked to Narendra Taneja (national convener of BJP’s energy cell) to know about the truth of the viral message. He said PM Modi paid an installment of the debt piled up in the UPA government’s regime. The UPA government paid just 55 percent of the oil bill to Iran. The money is not just 43 thousand crore rupees as Iran wants payment in the current value of Euros.
India paid Rs 5000 crore back to Iran. So, the message was true.
And so the high prices of oil in India is the gift by UPA Government that we are suffering. Watch the video of ‘Viral Sach’ below:
