Government has the power to run missions against the rice stockers. They have the proper power. If they feel it is necessary, they should do it right away. Then, why haven’t they done it already? There is nothing to announce about it. It is practically clear that, these rice stockers who are increasing the rice price, must have connections with the powerful influential groups within the authorities or else they could have been stopped long ago. Unfortunately, this rice price hike is the result of Governments’ wrong policies & inside corruption. This is why, the rice market is in current unstable situation. Also, rice was selling at 15 taka per kg rate at the Open Market Sale. But, even that has doubled now. This policy of Government has led to further price increase of rice.
