Upazilla Nirbahi Officer and Executive Magistrate Md Liaqoat Ali Shaikh has directed market monitoring activities on Thursday in different markets under Sherpur upazila in Bogura.
Moreover, the monitoring team requested the shop-keeps to update price chart along with distributing the sample of such chart.
The UNO accompanied by Upazila Food Controller sekender Rabiul Islam, Upazila Women Affairs Officer Subir Kumar Paul and Sub-Inspector of Sherpur Police station Shah Alam inspected the different wholesale points of the upazila from very early in the morning.
UNO Md Liaqoat Ali Shaikh said during this drive, the monitoring team strives to regulate the irrational escalation of potato price and instructed both whole-sellers and retailers to comply with government’s price limit. Any ill-motif to illegally stock-pile the potato or illogically swell the price will be handled sternly, UNO added.
