    food price inflation is out and out an consequential effect of the high investment on infrastructure in the last years budget. that time no opposition posed any question although it was quite visible that soon the people are going to face a heavy inflation. on the other hand budget is never monitored properly for example the budget allocated for minority welfare in the last budget was more than 1,700 crores but what has been released is less than 100 crores.
