Prices will come down, assures PM
New Delhi, Feb 5: Addressing the worrisome issue of price rise at the Congress Working Committee (CWC) meeting, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh assured that the government's steps to control the spiralling prices would soon yield favourable results and the prices will come down.

Speaking to the reporters after the meeting, Congress general secretary Janardhan Dwivedi reiterated what the prime minister said apart from briefing the media about what happened at the Friday, Feb 5 meeting.

"At the end of the meeting, the Prime Minister also spoke on the issue and expressed his concern. He said that things are improving and soon there would be more improvement," he informed.

Telangana was also discussed at the meeting attended by Chief Ministers of Congress-ruled states, except Maharashtra as party general secretary Rahul Gandhi is on a visit to the state.

"We have been asked to take steps to control rising prices and check hoarding and black marketing," Assam chief minister Tarun Gogoi said.

The raging 'Mumbai for issue' was also raised in the three-hour long meeting.

The meeting was held a day ahead of a conference of chief ministers convened by the prime minister to discuss rising prices.
