India calls out the West, says food grains shouldn’t go the way of Covid vaccines

“A number of low income societies are today confronted with the twin challenges of rising costs and difficulty in access to food grains. Even those like India, who have adequate stocks, have seen an unjustified increase in food prices. It is clear that hoarding and speculation is at work. We cannot allow this to pass unchallenged,” minister of state for external affairs V Muraleedharan said on Wednesday.
