Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today termed food adulteration, stockpiling, black marketing and ill attempt of creating crises of the daily commodities ahead of the holy Ramadan very contemptible, calling upon all to remain cautious against those.

“I call upon all to stay alert as none can adulterate and stockpile food and create crises of daily essentials ahead of the Ramadan,” she said.

The prime minister said this while inaugurating 50 more model mosques across the country joining virtually from her official Ganabhaban residence here.

She also requested the Alems and Imams to inform people about those social menaces through the khutbas (sermons) in the mosques to decrease the tendency of charging additional prices.

“The Ramadan is ahead. Some unscrupulous businessmen are trying to increase the price of commodities. It is a very abominable task,” she said.

“It is unnecessary to give people pain after increasing the prices of essentials when they will be busy with observing Ramadan and offering prayers,” she added.
