He said that in consultation with the nanbais the administration would review the decision after Sept 10 and revise the price of roti, but till then the bakers would follow the old price.

The nanbais observed complete strike on Tuesday and Wednesday, demanding upward revision of roti price. They said that prices of wheat flour and gas had recorded significant increase and they could not sell roti at the old official price. —Bureau Report
