Q. Nowadays, we see the rise in prices of edible things like pulses, onions, oils and some other products. The layman is facing hardship on account of it. Write a letter in 120-150 words to the editor of a reputed daily requesting him to highlight the difficulties faced by common man due to rise in prices. Sign yourself as Pranjal/Praneeta living at 124, Vivek Vihar, Delhi.
It is through the columns of your esteemed newspaper, I would like to draw the kind attention of the concerned authorities towards the unprecedented hike in prices of essential commodities. During last few months, prices of essential commodities have shot up. This rising trend continues unchecked. This inflation has made the life of a common man very difficult. The worst hit are the fixed income groups like the salaried people, labour class and the pensioners. For them, even the commodities of basic necessities like wheat, pulses, grains, vegetables etc are getting out of reach. It is becoming difficult for a common man to give good education to his children. Good medical treatment is beyond his reach. We cannot imagine where this price rise will stop. It seems that regulatory system has completely collapsed.
It is time that our government should check the causes behind the ever-increasing prices without any delay. The hoarders, black marketers and profiters should be dealt with severity. The public distribution system of rationing should be made more transparent and efficient. Moreover, taxes on basic necessities should be reduced to bring down the contrast between the wholesale and the retail prices. Only then common man can be relieved from the effects of price hike.
