A few days after assuring that prices will fall, Union Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar has said that milk price would go up, for there is scarcity of milk in north India, reported ANI.
Pawar’s statement is another bad news of the common man, who is already facing fire due rising prices.
The price of milk in Delhi is Rs 28/kg and Rs 22/kg, report said .

Meanwhile, there are reports that senior BJP leader Lal Krishna Advani will meet Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh later in the day to lodge the BJP’s protest against the rise in prices of essential commodities.
