The demand for flowers has increased in the market before the consecration of Lord Shri Ram's temple in Ayodhya. Be it rose or marigold, their prices are also witnessing a doubling. In Ghazipur market, roses are being sold at Rs 400 to Rs 500 and marigold flowers are being sold at Rs 300 per kg.
Traders believe that the demand for flowers has increased almost 90 times in recent times and the production capacity is limited compared to the demand. Raju, who has been doing business in Ghazipur flower market for a long time, said that the crowd of buyers has been increasing in the flower market for the last few days. They have never seen so much enthusiasm before. There is definitely inflation but people are taking as many flowers as they need. The special thing is that not only shopkeepers but also common people are coming to the market.
Buyers are coming to Ghazipur Mandi from all the cities around Gurugram-Noida to make purchases, so that during the Pran Pratishtha program of Ram Temple, they can decorate their house and the surrounding colony with flowers and welcome Lord Shri Ram. Even some buyers say that whatever happens now, the restoration of the Ram temple is our biggest priority and beyond this, no inflation can stop us.
Another aspect of this is that farmers have also benefited significantly from this. Because if demand has increased then prices have also increased. Farmers who grow flowers believe that the reason behind the increase in demand for flowers like marigold and roses is their maximum demand rather than the sanctity of the Ram temple. Therefore, they too are not facing any kind of problem, rather it seems that their income has increased further due to this.
