Regional political party, the Kongunadu Jananayaga Katchi (KJK), has described the hoarding of pulses as more serious offence than stashing of black money.

With prices of pulses shooting up from Rs.50 to more than Rs.200 per kilo, KJK founder-leader G.K. Nagaraj has said that the Government should take steps to recover pulses from the hoarders who are creating artificial scarcity.

In a statement, Nagaraj said that cultivation of pulses in Tamil Nadu has come down due to water shortage. Both the Centre and State Governments should conduct surprise raids on the storage go-downs of wholesale merchants all over the country, he said.
