Common consumer under distress
The average monthly prices of nine of the 22 food items that the Department of Consumer Affairs tracks on a daily basis rose to the highest on record in April.
Wheat, atta, edible oils, including groundnut oil, soya oil, palm oil, sunflower oil, vanaspati, milk and salt were retailing at the highest prices since 2012. Comparable data prior to that is not available.
Why are none of us bothered about these rising prices while some industrialists of our country reap record profits??? more
