With tension prevailing in Nagaland for the outcome of talks between Government of India and the NSCN, things are not normal in the state. Prices of essential commodities have risen in the past few days with no mechanism to check them. Prices of vegetables are randomly fixed, which is most of the time higher than what it has been a day back. While a committee has been formed to check and regulate prices, it seems that it has forgotten its duty to conduct checks. It is high time that the concerned authorities check such malpractices and impose penalties on those who are involved in price rise.
