So I just saw “Rs. 1” trending on twitter and I was intrigued to know what was this all about. It ended up to be a social media version of a statement made by Mr. Chidambaram. I now proceeded to actually have a glance on what other tweeters had to say about this and I must tell you that people on twitter don’t know how to be moderate. What I was more surprised about was their opinion on the statement. Most of them didn’t really make much sense as I am sure that these guys who are tweeting are probably flashing off their blackberries to be really bothered about rice costing Rs. 16 and not Rs. 15 bucks. The inquisitive brain of mine now wanted to read the actual statement rather than the 140 character versions. What you see below is the statement.
