What was the biggest financial blow you had to endure in 2012?
Increasing prices of petrol, cooking gas and inflation. The growing prices of the essential commodities last year impacted the house budget. I also feel for the people living in slums and in poverty who get affected by this growing prices and inflation and life become making more difficult for them.
Would you welcome a tax on the super rich?
Yes rather then burdening only middle income group, super rich should pay more.
What would you most like the finance minister to do in his upcoming budget?
Keep prices of petrol, cooking gas and essential commodities under control. In fact pre budget if one sees market today, prices of milk, petrol, wheat all have increased and that too by more then 20 %. Earlier years this used to happen once a year but now we see it happening every now and then, may be if he can keep this under control. Price rise should be once a year.
