Govt vows  to control price rise

Under attack for the price rise, the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government on Wednesday assured that it would work to control food prices despite the subdued monsoon. 

“There is no need to spread panic in the country. We need not panic,” Food Minister Ram Vilas Paswan told Lok Sabha replying to a discussion on price rise. Assuring that there was no short supply of food items and vegetables, Paswan said prices of onions and potatoes were generally high in the lean period between June and September. 

He blamed hoarders for the situation and said they take huge cuts and assured that the government has taken steps to sternly deal with them.
