Un-controlled basmati prices

Dear Editor,

Daily rising prices of commodities like rice, vegetables, cereals, mutton and milk products etc seem to be unabated. Common man middle class generation is suffering a lot but there seems no end to these soaring prices, administration is silent acting as mute spectators to all this. The rates of commodities vary from shop to shop, vendor to vendor, there's no guarantee of quality product. Take the example of basmati rice, where is original basmati of Jammu (RS Pura) which was world famous previous some years back. Nowadays only well decorated packing of 10 kg rice bags of different

mills of RS Pura are available in the market. The taste of rice is far lagging behind from original basmati whereas consumers are charged at the rate of Rs 800 or more per 10 kg bag. There's no aroma for which basmati rice was famous. Government has no check on the quality and prices of basmati. Every shopkeeper sells on his own rate. Take example of non vegetarian items like mutton, chicken, fish etc story is same.

First of all, behaviour of mutton sellers is quite astonishing as if they're doing great favour to customers by selling mutton at their own rates. Then meat is not sold as per consumer wish only bones and fats are seen as if one is purchasing fat and bones, not meat. The meat is already chopped off for making tikkas, kababs, kanti which these shopkeepers sell on much higher rates even some shopkeepers run their own tikka shops in the evenings.

And now, vegetables which have broken all the records. Every vendor sells at his own price. The rates in the morning are high in comparison to late evening. There's no rate list of items displayed by vegetable sellers and rates from shop to shop, vendor to vendor. But still administration is silent as there seems no control on them by government which is functioning to serve common people. The department related to check these malfunctioning are answerable to the public at large. Are they doing justice to their jobs. The higher ups in administration took serious note on these problems and sort out the difficulties faced by public and daily customers.
