States not ready to bring petrol and diesel under GST The truth is that the state is not ready for this, the fact is that the states are not ready for it. The Chief Ministers of the states are ready to kill with the revenue of petrol, diesel and liquor and when the debt increases, they blame others, they have given the biggest example of this from Punjab.
