CPI on Tuesday described the Government's decisions aimed at curbing prices as "too little too late" and said it would make no difference to the situation.

Reacting to the decisions taken by the Cabinet Committee on Prices last night to cut down duties on food imports, party MP D Raja said the impact of these measures would take a lot of time to fructify.

He regretted that nothing has been done to streamline the public distribution system and to ensure supply of essential commodities at affordable prices to the poor.

Raja said the party would go ahead with its planned agitation on price rise on April 17-18.
