Thiruvananthapuram, Apr 7:Admitting that Kerala was facing acute price hike of vegetables, Kerala Civil Supplies Minister C Divakaran today said the Government would take all possible measures to check the prices within two days.

Talking to mediapersons here, he said the Government would take immediate measures to procure vegetables from neighbouring Tamil Nadu, besides stern measures to control the monopoly of procuring vegetables from Idukki.
