New Delhi: Training his guns again on sports utility vehicles (SUVs), Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh asked the users of these fuel-guzzling cars to pay full market price for diesel which is subsidized for the benefit of farmers.

Ramesh, however, made it clear that his "deliberate" criticism of the SUVs need not be seen as him being against the automobile sector.

He had recently called SUVs as "criminals" and "Socially Useless Vehicles" for being bad emitters, fuelling a controversy in the auto sector. Germany, which is home to auto major BMW, had also taken strong exception to the remarks.

"Why should they get subsidised fuel meant for farmers," Ramesh asked while speaking at a conference on 5th Sustainability Summit organised by CII.

"We introduce the (diesel) subsidy for a certain economic purposes but have ended up with a wholly different purpose."
