Potato flop

In 2010 the Bainikhaiyum propaganda machine was talking up potatoes. They were going to cut imports and save huge amounts of money spent on imports from New Zealand. In 2012 the regime took to trying to slow imports by inspecting every potato coming into the country. Now they’ve admitted the whole exercise was a costly failure. Typical Bainikhaiyum we say.
