Patna: Beef is passe. It is the good, old dal which has become the latest issue in the Bihar Assembly elections, thanks to the steep hike in its price. The soaring prices of dal (pulses) have given the NDA and the Grand Alliance a chance to cross swords with each other in the middle of the polls.
“Dal is being sold everywhere for more than Rs 200 kg. Like onion, it has disappeared from the plate of a poor man,” Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said at his rallies across Bihar on Tuesday.
However, Union Agriculture Minister Radha Mohan Singh blamed the state government for the hike. “The production of dal has gone down in Bihar for three consecutive years in spite of the central assistance,” he said. Union Minister Ram Vilas Paswan said that the prices would come down after the NDA comes to power in the state.
