Chennithala blames government for price rise

Thiruvananthapuram: KPCC president Ramesh Chennithala on Saturday came out with sharp criticism against the UDF government for failing to tackle price rice while the State is in the run-up to Onam celebrations.

Chennithala, in a letter to the Chief Minister, asked the government to take effective efforts and intervene in the market to keep the price line down.

In the letter, the Congress leader pointed out that there was price rise of more than 30 percent in the market this year. The recent trend of inexplicable rise in prices of certain commodities, including chicken, rice, pulses, and vegetables is making the life of common people miserable. Unlike the previous years, some commodities have seen unexpected price hike without any valid reason.

“The government can take immediate action on two main issues – make available essential commodities at controlled rate through market intervention by Consumerfed, Supplyco, and Horticorp and strong action against hoarding and black-marketing, besides making display of pricelist mandatory,” he said.

Chennithala pointed out that the State government had failed to release Budget allocations to Supplyco and Consumerfed. These organisations should be allocated more funds, he said.
