The former Congress chief's attack came a day after petrol and diesel prices in the country touched new all-time highs after rates were increased for the fourth time in the week.
''Modi ji has brought about tremendous growth in GDP -- gas, diesel and petrol -- prices,'' Gandhi said in a tweet in Hindi. ''People are suffering due to inflation, while the Modi government is busy in tax collection,'' he alleged.
Diesel rate climbed to Rs 75.88 a litre in the national capital and to Rs 82.66 per litre in Mumbai, the price data showed.
