    Shopkeeper out here at kaunglung, Tashigang is charging a price more then the actual MRP. They charge 10 to 20 price then actual price.

    Complaining about the shop with our identity seems to be drawback and reason for “Not a single complaint”. Now don’t always relly on MRP means get the bullshit from Consumer Protection Act.

    Common shopkeepers, this is food that can have immense impact inside the consumers’ bodies; it is not a cloth that is acceptable.
