Commerce Minister Tipu Munshi on Wednesday said that there will be no price hike of daily commodities during the upcoming Ramadan of Muslims.
He made this comment before the journalists at a meeting on reviewing the scenario of the production, import, stock and prices of daily essentials.
Urging the traders, including retailers to sell their goods at fair prices he said, “There is enough stock of commodities in the market. Supply system and prices are also within the reach of people. Since, there will be no shortage of goods supply in the market; there will be no chances of price hike during the fasting month.”
“There is no reason behind the price hike during the holy month of Muslims because no disturbance is prevailing in terms of supplying daily commodities in the market’, Tipu Munshi added.
He warned that if there is any extortion in transporting goods, stern action will be taken.
