Vegetable value has a lot of importance in the lives of common people. Many times it has been found that vegetable prices shake even the elections and the chairs of leaders. Because it is a daily necessity of the common man. For this reason, it is very important to keep their prices stable and in the budget. A few months ago, tomatoes were selling for 20 to 30 rupees a kg. But tomato is being sold from ₹ 60 to ₹ 100 kg for few days.
A survey of Media Hindustan in Mumbai Goregaon found that many small shopkeepers have stopped keeping tomatoes. Shopkeepers say that even if they bring tomatoes and cannot sell tomatoes due to the rise in prices, their week-long earnings may be lost due to tomatoes. Onions can also be stored for a few days. But tomatoes are spoiled after few days, hence it is difficult to stock them.
When women were talked about it, they told that the prices of vegetables are remembered only by the government and the leaders in the election promises, while telling their pain, a duodenum said that the onion sentiment has already brought tears to the eyes. And now buying tomatoes has become even harder than buying apples. First Navaratri, Dussehra and now increasing the prices of vegetables in festivals like Diwali is a big problem for common families.
Flood is being considered as the main reason for increasing prices of vegetables. Recently, the cultivation of vegetables ended in almost all the states due to excess rainfall. As soon as new vegetable plants and fields are ready, vegetable prices will return to normal.
