Ever since fuel prices crossed the Rs 100 mark across various states in the country, there has been agitation amongst the public. A few days back, Madhya Pradesh Energy Minister Pradhuman Singh Tomar urged people to ride a cycle instead of bikes and cars.
And now, commenting on the rise in fuel prices, Minister Om Prakash Saklecha in Madhya Pradesh said, “if there is no trouble, you won’t be able to enjoy happiness,” reports NDTV.
“Troubles make you realise the happiness of good times. if there’s no trouble, you won’t be able to enjoy happiness,” he said.
