Prices of essential commodities have been sky rocketed in the state due to the blockage of National Highways.
Imphal Times conducted a survey at various markets around here, during which it has been found that onion is available at Rs 80/kg while garlic is available at Rs 100-140/kg while sugar and potato has reached Rs 35-40/kg and Rs 25-30/kg respectively at Khwairamband Keithel.
Rate of edible oils has also been raised while imported Rohu is available at an increased rate of Rs 170-200/kg. However, there is no increased in rate for local fishes.
Because of the landslide at Phesama in Nagaland (along NH- 02) and breakdown of Barak bridge (along NH-53) stock of petroleum products in the state has been dried up. Petrol is available at Rs 120-150/litre at grey market, while LPG is sold at around Rs 1800-1900/ cylinder.
A woman told this daily that the state government should strictly monitor the escalating rate of essential commodities. Taking advantage of the situation, many wholesalers have created artificial scarcity of goods.
