A quarter out to tarnish govt’s image by raising prices: Dipu Moni

A vested quarter is trying to tarnish the government’s image by raising prices of essential commodities, Education Minister Dipu Moni said Friday.

The education minister was talking to journalists after inaugurating a 4-bed Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at the 250 bed Chandpur General Hospital.

She said the government is trying their best to keep the prices within the purchasing capacity of the people but some dishonest people are trying to foil them.

“There are ministries and agencies of the government to keep an eye on price hikes and through them the situation will remain under control,” said Dipu Moni.

Replying to another question, Dipu Moni said, “A national policy is being formulated so that educational institutes can operate classes both online and offline during the Covid-19 pandemic situation.”

“We will be able to hand it to the Prime Minister this month,” she said.

Chandpur Additional Deputy Commissioner Imtiaz Hossain, Supervisor of Chandpur General Hospital AKM Mahbubur Rahman, Superintendent of Chanpur police Milon Mehmud and others were present at the programme.
