    I don`t understand , why cant government allow people to grow Wallapatta in a mass scale and allow to sell abroad. This is not corruption. What kind of silly government we have?. Our rupee is going down and no value.

    As long as no law set for Wallapatta, how authorities can arrest persons involving in this business?
