The Nitish-led government in Bihar has ordered a fresh probe into the alleged soil purchase scam in Patna.

Modi had claimed the two-acre land of the mall belonged to a firm where RJD chief Lalu Yadav’s sons Tejashwi Prasad Yadav and Tej Pratap were in the board of directors.

The government has doubled the quantum of the monthly increase in domestic LPG cylinder price to Rs 4. The decision is aimed at hastening the end of the subsidy regime for the kitchen fuel as the gap with market price shrank to Rs 86.54 for each refill in June amid an extended period of low global oil prices. With oil prices expected to remain low, the higher quantum of monthly hike could wipe out the subsidy sooner if oil prices fall further.
