On Tuesday, Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman expressed concern over rising crude prices due to the Ukraine crisis and indicated that the central government was looking to use alternative sources. In an interactive session hosted by the BJP’s Karnataka unit, he was asked about rising crude prices in the Indian economy and the impact of the war in Ukraine.

“It will definitely have an impact on the Indian economy,” the minister said. “How we’re going to take this as a challenge and be prepared to reduce the impact is something we’ll see as we go along.”
