Govt working to ensure supply of essential commodities at affordable price: Titu


DHAKA, May 7, 2024 (BSS) - State Minister for Commerce Ahsanul Islam
Titu today said the government is working to ensure the supply of
essential commodities at an affordable price.

"No one can manipulate the market if the supply of essential
commodities remain sufficient," he said.

The state minister said this while speaking as the chief
guest at an inaugural programme of selling essential products among
10 million (one crore) family cardholders across the country in
the city's Baridhara area.

Senior Secretary of Commerce Ministry Tapan Kanti Ghosh and senior
officials of Trading Corporation Of Bangladesh (TCB) were present, among others, on the occasion.

During the Ramadan, Titu said, there was a ban on onion export in India.
"But we imported onions from India under special arrangements through
the TCB. Our goal was to ensure that people could buy onions at an
affordable price. As a result, the price of onions is still within
reach for many people," he added.

He said: "We need to ensure that only eligible people get goods from
the TCB. The list would be updated periodically. We also plan to increase
the number of products which are sold through it."
