Food Minister Sadhan Chandra Majumder today said that there is no shortage of fertilizer anywhere in the country.
"A vested quarter is trying to fish in the troubled water by spreading false information that there is a shortage of fertilizer. Thus, the group is creating panic (among people)," he said.
The minister said these while talking to the reporters after inspecting the soil filling work for the proposed rice silo construction at Mohadevpur upazila of Naogaon district in the division of Rajshahi.
The food minister said: "Since last year, the allocation of fertilizer has not decreased by one ton, but the amount of cultivated land has decreased. In this situation, there is no chance of fertilizer shortage."
He reiterated that there is sufficient stock of fertilizer in the hands of farmers as they are getting fertilizer on time.
He warned that no one will be spared if anyone creates unnecessary troubles over fertiliser issue.
Rajshahi Regional Food Controller GM Farooq Hossain Patwari, Personnel Secretary to Food Minister Md Sahiduzzaman and District Food Controller Alamgir Kabir were also present, among others, on the occasion.
