A vegetable vendor while talking to the team told that, earlier if a person used to take 1 kg of goods, then now he is taking half a kg. Not only this, we are also getting less goods because the price of diesel has increased. The condition is that I do not even have money to pay my employees. Earlier, they used to do home delivery of vegetables too, but since the price of diesel has increased, they are not doing home delivery either.
