Consumer’s Association of Bangladesh (CAB) thinks that the price of daily commodities have gone up by five percent over the last two months.
The market analyst from CAB Emdad Hussain Malik , in an exclusive interview with VOA says that the price of rice , pulses and cooking oil have gone up by Taka 1 to 2 per kg. He also says that the price of green vegetables have risen by Taka five to Taka seven per kg. Emdad Hussain also says that the traders have always been saying that the price is rising because of the increase in price at the supply end.
Mir Nasir Hossain , the President of FBCCI , says that amongst other reasons the traders also feel frightened in the present situation and hence the price is going up. He says that with the promulgation of Emergency in Bangladesh and the governments efforts to launch a crackdown on dishonest traders as well as to dismantle illegal constructions , business in some genuine cases have also been adversely affected.
Mir Nasir Hossain , however , feels that they are trying to bring down the price of commodities through meaningful discussions with the traders and the government.
