Rural Development Minister Gopal Rai and Food and Civil Supplies Minister Asim Ahmed Khan on Monday took stock of the rising prices of vegetables in the wake of unexpected rains that hit Delhi last week.
Rai asked for various measures to be taken immediately to check the rising prices that are likely to take a toll on household budgets. The minister, among other things, ordered that the prices of onions, tomatoes and potatoes be clearly displayed in Azadpur, Ghazipur and Keshopur markets. He also directed that exorbitant margins charged by commission agents should be immediately curbed.
