Hiked Potato Price

10 wholesalers fined Tk 1.4 lakh in port city

A mobile court yesterday fined ten wholesalers a total of Tk 1,40,000 for selling potatoes at inflated prices at Chattogram city's Riazuddin market.

The traders were selling potatoes at Tk 40-42 per kilogramme without keeping sales receipts, although the government has set the retail price to Tk 30 per kg.

Omar Faruque, executive magistrate of Chattogram District Administration, told The Daily Star, "Most wholesalers are selling potatoes at inflated prices without keeping sales receipts. When we conducted the drive at the market, we found 10 traders charging more than the government set price."
