CHECK RIS­ING PRICES OF ES­SEN­TIAL ITEMS

Hindustan Times (Patiala) - - Region -

The rul­ing and op­po­si­tion par­ties are busy fighting the Lok Sabha elec­tions but the com­mon man is ag­grieved as the re­tail in­fla­tion is at a six-month high of 2.92% in April, mak­ing food items costlier. In­fla­tion in ur­ban ar­eas rose to 4.64% in April from 3.47% in the pre­vi­ous month. Car­tels and mid­dle­men ma­nip­u­lated prices. The stock mar­kets or up­beat eco­nomic data do not re­flect the true pic­ture of the econ­omy. The gov­ern­ment should take steps to check ris­ing prices of es­sen­tial items.
