Reeling under relentless inflationary spiral, government and top Congress leadership got into action on Saturday to formulate measures to check prices as Finance Minister P Chidambaram cautioned against "panic".

The strategy for managing inflation that shot to 13-year high at 11.05 per cent was discussed with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh by both Finance Minister and RBI Governor Y V Reddy.

Chidambaram later conferred with Sonia Gandhi to apprise her of the situation.
