When Narendra Modi made a speech a few days ago declaring that Rahul Gandhi was too scared of failure to campaign in Gujarat, perhaps Modi was hoping to goad the Congress messiah into entering the fray.
If that was the idea, then it has come through in spades for Narendra bhai, since Rahul Gandhi did come, did make a campaign speech and in typical Rahul-ian style, allegedly delivered this gem -
"Potatoes are sold for 3 Rupees a kilo, a packet of chips is sold at 10 Rupees. Who loses finally?"
To give the Gandhi heir the benefit of the doubt, perhaps he meant the phrase metaphorically.
Perhaps he was trying to drive home the point that raw vegetables are sold at low costs but packaged edibles made from those vegetables are sold are a much higher price.
Although, even by that logic, a 3 Rupees to 10 Rupees conversion, when you include things like packaging, storing, shipping, cooking, salaries for employees etc is still a reasonably low margin.
