Taking a cue from Delhi, the Uttar Pradesh government on Saturday trimmed the prices of diesel by Rs 1.50 a litre, petrol by Rs 1 a litre and LPG by Rs 11.35 a cylinder by abolishing 4 per cent VAT on cooking gas and reducing trade tax on petrol and diesel.

Chief Minister Mayawati took a decision to this effect during a Cabinet meeting in Lucknow.
