New Delhi: In the wake of the rising fuel prices in the country, actor turned politician Urmila Matondkar took to Twitter on Thursday to take a sarcastic take through the popular poem “Akkad Bakkad Bambe Bo.”
As petrol prices on Thursday crossed Rs 100 per litre in states such as Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan, Urmila used the lines from the popular poem with some changes.
Here’s what she wrote
अक्कड़ बक्कड़ बंबे बो
डीजल नब्बे पेट्रोल सौ
सौ मे लगा धागा
सिलेंडर ऊछल के भागा 😱😱

In states like Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan, Petrol prices have crossed Rs 100-mark and now are sold at Rs 100.72 in Rewa, MP and cost Rs 100.16 per litre in Hanumangarh, Rajasthan.
