Rising inflation: Jaitley holds high-level meeting

New Delhi : Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley will chair a high-level meeting with Food Minister Ram Vilas Paswan and Agriculture Minister Radha Mohan Singh on rising inflation on Wednesday.

Union Parliamentary Minister Venkaiah Naidu will also be present at the meeting.

Earlier today, Food Minister Paswan flagged off a mobile van to distribute ‘tur dal’ in Delhi at Rs. 120 per kg.

Meanwhile talking to reporters, Paswan said from June to August tomato, potato prices always increase, but this is just a temporary.

He said pulses’ price rose due to gap in demand and supply and deficient monsoon last year. (ANI)
