Bhopal, Aug 4: The Congress have come up with another unique way of protest against the increasing prices of tomatoes. The party workers are now selling the vegetable outside the Uttar Pradesh Assembly at Rs 10 per kilogram. The move comes a day after the launch of ‘State Bank of Tomato’ by the Congress against the soar in the prices of the vegetable.
In recent weeks, the prices of tomatoes have increased tremendously owing to crop damage in producing states. Meanwhile, the government has asserted that it is keeping a close watch on the movements of the price of the commodity.
In various parts of the nation tomatoes are still being sold at Rs 100-120 per kilogram. However, improved production is supposed to bring down tomato prices from mid-August and September, a report claimed.
