Price hike in essential commodities market
Most kitchen markets in Dhaka were closed since the day before yesterday due to the post-Eid lockdown. A lot of buyers have stocked up on essentials before Eid. As the markets are starting to reopen after Eid, the prices of vegetables and fish have increased. Many essential products have rotten, forcing traders to increase the prices to recoup their losses.
The Daily Star reporter Sukanta Halder went to Karwan Bazar to survey the situation. He shared his findings in Star on the Spot.
