Most importantly mass gathering were avoided thereby abiding to the Covid Appropriate Behaviour, since gatherin of more than 10 members were not allowed. Tamuk was of the opinion that since there has been an exponential and unprecedented rise in the price of Petrol and Diesel, the price of basic commodities which are being used everyday in every home has risen multiple times. Price rise in the market is sometimes link to transports & logistics, hence it becomes unavoidable for the transporter to hike the cost of transportation which ultimately push the price of the commodities in the Market.
