News Desk: The Minister of Information and Broadcasting and the Joint General Secretary of the Bangladesh Awami League. Hassan Mahmoud says food prices have risen in the United States. In Bangladesh, however, the prices of some products have gone up, but much less than in Europe. The products whose prices have gone up in the country are import dependent. The government is also taking various steps to control prices.
He warned that strict measures would be taken if any attempt was made to create an artificial product crisis.
Dr. Hasan said there is no food crisis in the country. Attempts are being made to artificially create a food crisis. The BNP has given a program in the field about the price of goods. They (BNP) are giving air to unscrupulous traders to increase the price of goods. Let there be an artificial crisis in the country.
The minister said the BNPO is working against the country just as the unscrupulous traders are working against the country by increasing the price of goods. The BNP is advising unscrupulous traders to increase the prices of their products ahead of the upcoming Ramadan. We are keeping an eye. But the government will take strict action against these dishonest traders if necessary.
He was speaking as the chief guest at the closing ceremony of Chittagong Book Fair, awarding of the great Ekushey Memorial Medal and Literary Award at the Gymnasium ground adjacent to MA Aziz Stadium in Chittagong on Thursday (March 10) at 7 pm.
Dr. "In developed countries, including Europe and America, we see prices being reduced before any ceremony or puja," Hassan said. When Ramadan, Eid, Puja-Parwan come, the traders of our country try to increase the price of goods. It is gross dishonesty and deception with the people. Those who do these things will act against the people. The government will take action against them.
The Information Minister further said that many of us cannot feel the way Bangladesh has moved forward today under the leadership of Sheikh Hasina, the daughter of Bangabandhu, as we are going through this change. The man who went abroad 12 years ago did not come to the country in the middle, when he comes to Bangladesh he notices the change.
"In the last week of last month, I visited several states in eastern India," he said. During the meeting, the Chief Minister of Assam said that he used to visit Dhakeswari temple in Dhaka every year. Every year he notices a change. Bangladesh is moving forward under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, daughter of Bangabandhu, it is encouraging us. The Governor of Assam and the Chief Minister of Tripura have said exactly the same thing.
Hasan Mahmud said that the whole world is praising the change of Bangladesh today, but some people of Bangladesh cannot appreciate it. The BNP has a party in Bangladesh and their allies do not see this development. Basically they pretend not to see. Today they have taken to the field with various programs to confuse the people. The main theme of the program is commodity prices.
He said that in today's world, people's reading habits have decreased a lot. Now people don't read books like before. One of the reasons for this is that human leisure has decreased. The time for people to read books is no longer the same as before. Because people are just running, people are running after money and many are running for life, people are running forever.
The minister added that another issue is the digital platform. The digital platform has taken away the leisure time that people get now. But what can a book do to change a person's life and play a very important role in the development of human thinking, especially in the development of the best skills of children and adolescents, or even in changing lives. It is very important for children and teenagers to develop the habit of reading books and at the same time allow them to read the right books.
At the conclusion of the 19-day book fair initiated by Chittagong City Corporation, Mayor Md. Rezaul Karim Chowdhury was the special guest at the presidency of the Deputy Commissioner. Muminur Rahman. The convener of the Book Fair Celebration Council, said the welcome speech. Nisar Uddin Ahmed Monju.
