  1. These are simple official statements which have zero bearing at ground level. The government itself knows that the mutton is sold @ 350/kg in retail on every butcher shop. I myself purchase it the same rate. Even the officers who fix the rates wold be themselves purchasing beyond the fixed rate. Why should the govt want that somebody should register the complaint, why can’t the govt formulate secret squads to observe itself whether their announced rates exist anywhere. This is simply befooling the public. Chickens are sold @130/kg. What is the official rate and who monitors it? Poor inapt government.
