The main reason is hoarding of essential commodities and thus artificially raising the prices to make profits. The government agencies need to swing into action and take stringent action against the hoarders. Our laws are really good but are not being implemented properly. Higher authorities should take action on the corrupt officials who pocket money from the hoarders and turn a blind eye towards their nefarious activities. I am surprised to see so high prices of essential commodities inspice of regular flow of commodities after the new crops.
Normally after the elections, taxes are raised. Government should help the poor by subsidising electricity and water charges.
We have an excellent set up of administration but somehow they do not seem to be doing their job well. The departments concerned are responsible for their failure.

I resubmit hereunder a very common question coming in the minds of common men.

What is the reason behind declining economy for common men inspite of rising GDP or what is the reason behind continuous rise in prices of essential goods and commodities?

It is none other than corruption is my clear cut answer. Politicians in collusion with administrative officers (beaurocrats)are busy in making money from traders and have given full freedom to them to loot as much as possible and share with them (politicians and government officers) Prices are rising and rising unbridled only because there is none to monitor.

I disagree with lame excuses given by ruling central government of UPA like global slowdown or lesser production or bad climate. You might have heard on TV and read in print media that onion and rice in huge quantity were exported inspite of ban on export of rice.
Why and how could it so occur?
Because politicians in general and ministers in particular forget all rules wh ...more
