Bring Petrol & Diesel under GST

Why can't we bring petrol and diesel prices  under GST?
At present, a central excise duty of 23% and State VAT of 34% is  levied on petrol and diesel. Thus, the total tax works out to 57%.
If these essential products are brought under GST , the maximum tax will be only 28%. This means the prices of petrol and diesel can come down by almost 50%.
The people and the economy at at large will be benefited as it will have a positive, cascading effect. 
We request you to consider this immediately and make it part of the midnight announcement of July 1
