As the prices of petrol and diesel touch record highs, Madhya Pradesh Energy Minister Pradyuman Singh Tomar has highlighted the advantages of cycling and said the government was spending tax revenue earned from petroleum fuels for the benefit of the poor. The minister was on Monday responding to a query by reporters on the skyrocketing prices of petroleum fuels.

"I have been criticised for this earlier also. But, I am saying it again today, do we ever go to the vegetable market on bicycle? Cycling will keep us physically fit and also free from pollution," he said. The minister was on a personal visit to Indore.

"What is important for us – petrol and diesel or are the country's health services?" the BJP leader asked. Tomar said the habit of cycling applies equally to him as well as common citizens.
