Adviser to the Prime Minister on Private Industry and Investment Salman F Rahman categorically has said drastic action will be taken against those who will be found involved in hiking the price of essentials during the holy month of Ramadan.

"We are adamant to take disciplinary action against the greedy and unscrupulous businessmen found to be guilty of creating any unstable situation in markets," he said while talking to the newsmen here today.

He also said there is no crisis of the dollar as the Bangladesh Bank has adopted necessary steps in this regard. "We are very much hopeful about reaching the dollar rate to a satisfactory level within the shortest possible time," he added.

The business tycoon said if the dishonest traders hike the price of commodities during the month of Ramadan they will be brought to book.

He also told the journalists that the Food Minister will call all the Deputy Commissioners and Superintendents of Police to Dhaka within the next few days to give direction in this regard.

Salman F. Rahman came to Rajshahi to attend the 34th Tabligi Ijtema of Ahle Hadith Andolon Bangladesh at Bagha on Friday.
