    If we depend too much on other countries even for simple basic necessities, then we will be affected. Making our country self sufficient in terms of food is very crucial so that we dont have to import starting from rice to oil. If rupee continue to slip such items will be very expensive and our people cannot afford. Hardest hit will be the people in urban areas. So people in urban areas brace for the worst.
