  1. Whatever decrease it was, it not not sufficient at all: the Lepep government maintained it at its unreal levels while everywhere in the world it’s slumping! In India, it’s already the 10th decrease since August 2014: http://www.outlookindia.com/news/article/Petrol-Price-Cut-by-80-PaiseL-Diesel-by-Rs-130L/891704

    Go figure how Vishnu will bring on competitiveness, despite sky-rocketing prices to come with the USD climbing from 31 to 38 MUR over the past 4 months!
