The amount of collected food grains is enough for the government reserve, the minister says

Food Minister Sadhan Chandra Majumder on Thursday said that the market price of rice is affordable and stable amid the coronavirus pandemic as the government’s paddy and rice collection aim has been fulfilled.

“Although the government’s paddy and rice collection target remained unfulfilled, its aim has been achieved successfully in the recently concluded Boro season,” he said.

The minister came up with the remarks at a programme in Niamatpur upazila of Naogaon in the afternoon.

He said the amount of collected food grains is enough for the government reserve.
