Senior Correspondent: Commerce Minister Tipu Munshi on Thursday said, “There is sufficient stock of essential commodities, so there is no possibility of increasing price of essentials during Ramadan. If anyone tries to create crisis, action will be taken.”
The minister made the statements while talking to reporters at the secretariat after a meeting regarding the preparation for the upcoming holy month of Ramadan.
He said that letter will be sent to the deputy commissioners and the superintendents of police with strict directives to stop extortion during carrying of goods on roads and highways.
The government will strictly monitor markets across the country to control prices of commodities during the Ramadan, Tipu said.
