Wrong mate, you should tell the whole story and skip the bullshit, the government is trying to intervene in the rising prices of the fruit and vegetable as everyone is charging what he wants, if you are dressed in suite the shop owner or Market person will charge you different prices then if you dress local. Kg tomato wholesale price is 1.25 per kg, supermarkets are charging 3.95-4.50kg. If the government puts a 25 per cent provitamins allowance that means that everyone will sell h fruit and vegetable at a affordable price, abdel Nasser done this and it was for more than 15 years, that the prices got regulated by the government. It needs to be affordable for everyone without moonshine Mark up.
This is the fact which got published yesterday, as people are complaining that everything is to expensive.
So as you can see clearly you missed the point,!!!!!
