Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said on Sunday that his government was doing its best to control the prices of basic necessities in the country amid high global inflation.

“We have done our best to control the prices of basic necessities,” she said at the grand opening of 40 new fire stations at different locations around the county.

The prime minister also ordered relevant authorities to take appropriate action against hoarders of essential items and those who gamble with their prices.

She joined the inaugural ceremony at the city’s Fulbaria Fire and Civil Defense Headquarters via video conference from her official residence Ganobhaban.

Hasina said the coronavirus pandemic has caused an economic recession around the world, made worse by the ongoing war between Ukraine and Russia.

There is a food crisis even in many developed countries and the inflation rate has gone up to 17% in some places. The inflation rate is 7-9% in many European countries, she added.
