While the people of India are suffering from rising food and fuel prices, the high government bureaucrats were busy in celebrating the Indian growth story at the World Economic Forum. The Deputy Chairman of the Planning Commission commented that food inflation is occurring as the people are becoming more prosperous and consuming more.
Ministers are also suggesting that the solution to food inflation lie in allowing MNCs to open super markets in India. Are statements like this meant for AamAadmi?
