Addressing mediapersons here today, he said the BJP government had increased the support price of apple by Rs 2.50 as compared to 50 paise by the Congress. The price of A-grade apples was good, but that of tainted apples was low.

He said the Congress was practising negative politics as they were threatened by the popularity of the Union Government and the state. The Congress has become nervous, he said. — TNS
