    before making any comments i wish know by what % the prices have gone down... Except Sprats and Dhal, the current prices of other items are reasonably ok.

    Oooh Goody, goody!!! Can we have more Elections? We have just found a solution to our economic problems.

    Punchi Sngho Thursday, 09 August 2012 02:27 PM

    This is true. Only problem is the weight will also be reduced accordingly at Sathosa outlets. With the Chinese investments in the country the Government thinks we are Konde bandapu Cheenu.

    Dadoriya Thursday, 09 August 2012 02:35 PM

    Our great President knows the hardships of the people specially at election time. Thus the reduction. This is not an election gimmick. Real heat felt feeling to the suffering masses.

    Till elections over. thanks Sathosa.
