In a step to give a breather to the people of the state who are facing many hardships due to the ongoing economic blockades on the NHs, the state government today resolved to provide essential commodities to the public at the normal rate.
SPF spokesperson, CAF&PD Minster N Biren told reporters that the government will use its reserved earnest money to buy essential commodities from the market at other states and will provide them to the people at normal rate.
Speaking on the price rise issue, he said that the prevailing situation of price rise in the market is due to the non-functioning of private transport on the NHs fearing of possible arson act by the blockade supporters.
