Can you buy a meal for Rs 5? Tell us

NEW DELHI: Statements of Congress leaders Raj Babbar and Rasheed Masood seem to suggest that they have no idea of reality. Babbar has said that a full, wholesome meal can be had for Rs 12 in Mumbai, while Masood said you can get it for as less as Rs 5 in Delhi.

"People should have full meals two times a day. How one can have it is a very good question that you have asked. Even today in Mumbai city, I can have a full meal at Rs. 12," Babbar told reporters in Mumbai on Thursday.  Babbar, a Congress spokesperson, is also a Bollywood actor but he wasn't saying this for dramatic effect. He believes Rs. 12 buys one a nutritious meal.

"No, no, not bada paav. So much of rice, daal saambhar and with that some vegetables are also mixed," Babbar said.

Masood, Rajya Sabha MP from Uttar Pradesh, pulled the bar even lower. "You can eat a meal in Delhi in Rs. 5. I don't know about Mumbai. You can get a meal for Rs. 5 near Jama Masjid," Masood said on Thursday.

Do you think Rs 12 is enough to buy a meal in your city? If you don't, then please tell us how much do you spend on a meal a day.
