There is no shortage of food in the country despite pandemic, says the agriculture minister

Agriculture Minister Dr Muhammad Abdur Razzaque on Tuesday asked all the officials of the ministry to prepare for the second wave of the coronavirus outbreak that is likely to hit the country during the upcoming winter.

The minister came up with the remark in an online meeting on the annual development project (ADP) at the Ministry of Agriculture in Dhaka.

The second wave of Covid-19 has occurred in many countries of Europe, he said adding, “The agriculture sector of the country would suffer the most if this second wave of coronavirus hits Bangladesh”

“In that case, we have to continue working no matter what situation occurs and have to be prepared properly.”, Razzaque said.

“So far no disaster had happened and there is no shortage of food and hopefully this will remain the same in the future,” he added.

“Agricultural production should continue even if the second wave of covid-19 invades the country,” he insisted.

In the 2020-21FY, around Tk2,361 crore was invested in 68 projects under the Ministry of Agriculture and until September 9% of the projects have been implemented, the minister added.
