Fuel prices have crossed the Rs100 mark in Goa as India saw its seventh hike in fuel price in eight days. According to newly-appointed Cabinet minister Mauvin Godinho, fuel prices are bound to increase because of the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine.

While responding to questions from mediapersons after attending the new government's first Cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Pramod Sawant, Godinho said, "Because of the rising international crude oil (prices), they are bound to rise. Are you not aware that Russia and Ukraine are at war."

"Is it the local government that has increased the prices? The whole world is bearing the brunt of price rise," Godinho said
