The Price of Vegetables nearly double in Some areas of Pakistan
Price of Vegetables Doubled
To the health point of view vegetables plays very important role in our life. As you know that Health is wealth.
The double prices of vegetables have affected the sales of vendors in local markets. Except for onions and potatoes, prices of all vegetables have been doubled in the market. The price of lemon and ginger garlic has also increased of upto Rs 50 per kg.
Visitors of different markets told that till the last week the retail price of tomatoes was Rs 40 per kg. Due to a spike in prices, people do not buy more than half a kilogram of tomato at a time while some refrain to purchase after asking for price.
Even coriander leaves and green chilies, which came complimentary with vegetables, are now being sold with a price tag of over Rs 20-30 for 100 grams. The increase in the vegetable prices has forced many to exclude these from their shopping list.
Visitors to these vegetables are increasingly frustrated by the situation and the government’s non-serious attitude to fixing it. They hope someone takes notice of the situation and makes the common man’s woes go away.
