Commerce Minister Tipu Munshi MP said the prices of many essential commodities have already come down.
The minister said this while talking to journalists at his residence on the Central Road in the city today (March 31).
He said the prices of some products in the market increased during the holy month of Ramadan, but now it's falling.
Compared to other years and in the pretext of the current global situation, Bangladesh is doing well. Prices of daily essential commodities are gradually decreasing. Besides, oil, sugar and other products are being given to poor families through TCB.
"Daily essential commodities are being sold now in the country at the prices fixed by the government," he said.
The minister said that at the beginning of fasting in the holy month of Ramadan, common people felt pressure to buy daily necessities at high prices.
"Now that pressure has subsided. The prices of daily necessities have also decreased in Dhaka city. The price of onions has come down. We have reduced onion imports from India to ensure fair prices for locally produced onion to farmers," he added.
