"Government says will not cut fuel prices. Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President (Amit Shah) says 'Centre will soon arrest fuel prices'. BJP must have found a crude oil source that will supply crude oil free!" Chidambaram tweeted.
"There is mounting anger among the people as prices of petrol, diesel and LPG soar every day," he added.
"Government claims that demonetisation and GST have wiped out black money. CEC (Chief Election Commissioner) says democracy under threat from black money. Where is the black money coming from? Crisp new Rs 2,000 notes?" he said in another tweet.
