TOMATOES ARE FOR RICH PEOPLE WHO HAVE RED CHEEKS SAYS BJP MP PRABAHAT JHA,COMMENT CREATES STIR NATIONWIDE

Rajya Sabha MP Prabhat Jha of BJP  on Sunday created a controversy by commenting on tomatoes issue.

Jha said, “Tamatar jinke gaal laal hote hai, jo paise waale hote hai, woh khate hai. Lekin uske baad bhi niyantran karne ki koshish ki hai. Lekin zara si mausam ki maar se badhi huyi keemat se humari sarkar ko maarne ki koshish nahi hona chaiye. (Tomatoes are only for the rich people. Even then the government is trying to control the price rise. The Centre should not be cornered on the issue of rising prices of vegetables because of bad monsoon).

Tomato prices have touched a high of Rs 60-80 per kg in most parts of the country in recent weeks due to bad monsoon.
