Tomatoes at the cost of apples is unbelievable but no point blaming the politicians as the poor man’s grievances are seldom heard & fall on deaf ears. People should take a leaf out of the books of the Japanese who boycott consumption of goods whose prices are artificially rigged by hoarders by illegal means. People are not going to die if they stop consumption of tomatoes for a few weeks. Tomatoes are perishable & hoarders will have to even dump them in the markets at a discount if it has no buyers in the markets.
People should show oneness as in unity lies strength. Also, we talk of corruption everywhere but we too are equally to be blamed for bribing officials to get our work done. People need to change certain habits to bring sanity be it in their lives or the functioning of the government.
