Bread (pao) war in Goa gets heated up

Bread (pao) war in Goa?!

The tension between the All Goa Bakers and Confectioners Association (AGBCA) and the All Goa Association of Bakers (AGAB) became even greater. Why?

 Peter Fernandes, AGBCA president, was critical of the decision to sell pao (bread) for Rs. 4 in Salcete while the rest of Goa had increased the price to Rs. 5 since November 1. He feels that the AGAB’s decision to keep the price at Rs.4 is unacceptable, a mockery, and will badly affect bakers in Goa.

 In October, AGAB had increased the price to Rs 5 but then changed their minds after the association’s joint secretary opposed it.

Fernandes feels that when the price rise is delayed when there is public support, it will put a stop to any more price rises as non-Goans want more commissions and turnover. This will be very bad for bakers in the state.

The price of pao was forced to increase as the government didn’t offer any support after being requested and the cost of raw materials has risen.
