Rising Prices of Essentials hurting citizens
Many of you have been writing in various posts and comments on the rising prices of tomato, onions and potato and thereafter we at LocalCircles conducted a survey which clearly brings out the high prices 61% of households are paying for these essential commodities. http://bit.ly/covid19-pricerise
You are urged to share the same with every contact of yours so the message reaches the Government and they intervene. When the people of the country are facing earnings decline or no earnings, price rise of essential commodities is just not acceptable. more
Dear Mr. Om Bhadada,
I do not think consumers who can afford to buy shirts costing 2000/- to 4000/- or a cap for 500/- or tomatoes at 60/- per kg. have voiced their opinion. It is the common man who is feeling the pinch. You have to think of the lower middle class and the ones below, especially in the present scenario.
I would say that even if the prices of the agricultural products are rising, eventually as long as the farmers benefit it is fine. Unfortunately, the farmers are not getting any benefit, it is the middlemen, the agents who are looting. This is what has to change. more
In the Monsoon months Flooding is very prone all over India. Hence most of the Crop gets destroyed. More over we do not have proper all weather Storage facility with the result Crop gets destroyed. Another is Transportation System comes to a grinding halt, with the result Crop can not reach Market timely and properly.
These are some of the reasons during Monsoon, why Vegetables becomes Costly. more
Madam, everyone shall have concern like you on rising prices of eatables, which is a very common phenomenon during few months, world over, due to unavoidable reasons. However, how many people have raised this kind of questions when people from all walks of life have made serpentine Qs to buy DARU after first unlock-down and even when the the great Delhi CM has raised the taxed on it by 70%. Do you or me and like ours feel it a costly item when we visit the garment shop after looking at the price tag that a shirt is costing 2000/- to 4000/- or a cap is priced at 500/- or a set of undergarments / lingerie costs 1000/- to 2000/-? No we don't but because those items are not produced by our "Annadata" but by corporate world. We all fee pinch when it come to pricing of agricultural produce because the small and poor farmer does not have any wherewithal mint money. Please be more judicious while raising the issues. Jai Haind, Jai Jawan and Jai Kishan. more
The Govt itself is busy squeezing the middle class- look at the retail prices of fuel. Whether it is diesel or petrol or the domestic cooking gas- the Govt is busy squeezing the middle class. The international crude prices had gone down to $ 10 per barrel but did we get any benefit? Please do not expect any reductions in the prices in the near future. Now wait and see the price of onions go up to nearly Rs 65-70 per kilo in the next two weeks. We are busy talking about all things except price rise! more
Government has failed to control prices of commonly used items. more
