    In an insensitive statement which seems like pouring salt on the wounds of the poor, Union Law Minister Kapil Sibal has said that price of vegetables has risen because the poor are able to purchase vegetables.

    According to reports, Siabal said on Thursday that those people of lowest strata of our society who used to eat one vegetable with chapatis are now now affording to eat two dishes of vegetables which is a reason for rising prices in the country.

    It is important to note that earlier, several senior Congress leaders like Rashid Masood and Raj Babbar had made similar in insensitive remarks denying price rise as an issue.

    Masood had said that one can get stomach full meal for just Rs 5 in Delhi whereas Babbar had said that one can get a thali of food for just Rs 12 in Mumbai.
