Take stern action against illegal hoarders during Ramadan: PM

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Sunday (Mar 3) called for taking stern action against the illegal hoarders of daily essentials during holy Ramadan. 

The prime minister made the directives while opening the Deputy Commissioner’s (DC) Conference-2024 at her office in the city.

Divisional Commissioners and deputy commissioners of districts joined the four-day conference, which will conclude on Wednesday.

She said there are some hoarders who let goods rot but do not supply the goods to the market. It needs to take tough legal action in this regard.

PM asked the field administration to pay special attention so that the essential goods could reach the people smoothly during the upcoming Ramadan, the month of fasting for Muslims.

The inflation rate is still within 10% in Bangladesh, it is nonetheless a problem, she said.

The premier also directed the officials to increase monitoring on the market situation and ensure the consumers will not be subjected to harassment.

Public Administration Minister Farhad Hossain, PM’s Principal Secretary Tofazzel Hossain Miah, Dhaka Divisional Commissioner Sabirul Islam, Chattogram DC Abul Bashar Mohammed Fakhruzzaman and Gaibandha DC Kazi Nahid Rasul spoke at the opening session.

This year, some 350 proposals have been put forth by the DCs and divisional commissioners for the DC Conference, a platform for top field-level administration officials.
