“It is extremely difficult for the government to pass on the entire burden to the consumers. We will have to go before the empowered group of ministers (EGoM),” he said.

Sundareshan hoped the EGoM would meet before the sale of stakes in IOC and ONGC, which should be in the last quarter of the current fiscal year.
