All these were supposed to threaten UPA in the last election. But somehow they managed to secure the power once more. PM being a financial expert was very much concerned about the price high. The high level committee chaired by Prime minister decided to increase the supply of rice and wheat through ratio shops to curb the price rise. Each card owner will be eligible to get 10 Kg per card. This is apart from 35 kg per month’s supply.
