Heavy rainfall makes vegetables, fruits and milk unaffordable for average Mumbaikar

After disrupting the normal life and claiming many lives, heavy rain has now affected the supply of vegetables, fruits, milk from various cities in the state to Mumbai. As a result, the prices of the commodities have shot up.

As the roads are blocked due to waterlogging in some parts of the states, vendors are unable to supply vegetables, fruits and milk. D V Ghanekar, managing director of the Kolhapur Zilla Dudh Utpadak Sangha or Gokul, told to Hindustan Times that they supply seven lakh liters of milk to Mumbai and three lakh to Pune. Now this has all come to standstill as the roads from Kolhapur are all closed.
