Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan has said it is not unusual for the green chilli price to go up during periods of heavy rains and that the people are well aware of it.

“The people know that the prices of certain items, including green chillies, tend to increase during the rainy season. If rainfall decreases, the price will also go down. The prices of several products have already dropped and are expected to decrease further," the minister told reporters at the Secretariat on Sunday.

During his interaction, the home minister said: "This year's Eid-ul-Azha was celebrated peacefully, with a positive law and order situation in the capital. However, the unfortunate incidents of the fatal stabbing of a police constable and the injury of a journalist are deeply saddening. We are currently investigating these incidents."

"The Awami League has never been disconnected from the people; they are our primary strength. Hence, I believe the people will continue to place their trust in us."

Addressing a recent agitation raised by the BNP after Eid, the minister said: "If they attempt to cause anarchy in the country through rallies, law enforcement agencies will not remain passive. Their disruptive actions are causing a rift between them and the people. If they continue engaging in such activities during election rallies, the public will reject them. The people will never accept those who resort to violence and arson. Instead, they will gradually distance themselves from such individuals."
