Stabilise prices ahead of Ramadan: Home Minister

Minister for Home Affairs Asaduzzaman Khan, MP, on Sunday called upon businesses to stabilise the prices of essential commodities during the holy month of Ramadan as people's incomes have been hit hard by Covid-19 in the country.

The prices of daily essentials come down in all Muslim countries in the world during the month of Ramadan but the prices go up in Bangladesh in this time.

So, we need assistance from businesses, the minister said in a webinar of Dhaka Chamber of Commerce & Industry (DCCI) on Law and order situation and keeping prices of essentials stable in the upcoming Ramadan.

The minister said Bangladesh will go for a hard lockdown to save lives from April 14. We will take necessary steps for the sake of the countrymen. The extortion is under control now. We could not control it hundred percent but we are tough against it, he added.
