Dear Editor, The prices of vegetables, pulses and other household items have increased manifold in a very short period. The sharp increase in onion prices has made it difficult for the common man to eat even chapati with onion chutney. This hefty increase in prices of essential commodities is due to low production. The wholesaler reduces the supply to gain more profit by hoarding. But the government is doing nothing to reduce the inflated prices. It is vital to increase the production of vegetables and nab those involved in the black marketing and hoarding of onion and other items of daily use. Kamaljeet Malwa, Via-e-mail.
