In a way yes. As an agriculture minister he should have foreseen the shortage of certain essential food grains which are going to be affected and should have taken preventive measures to ease the anticipated problem . He has failed to do so. As such he is responsible to certain extend for this rise.

It is the people of India who show so much of interest in cricket and not much interest in electing the right party to power who are responsible for the price rise. It is the construction of factories and building for setting up IT and ITES services in agriculture land that has brought down the production of essential commod ...more

The man who knows nothing abot cricket is managing global cricket for money.He does not have time to study the demand n supply of essential items.Whenever he finds time he thinks of his vote bank.He never bothers for the common man.Therefore,he is responsible for the price rise.
