Tipu Munshi said the lawsuit will be filed against the businessmen who will disregard the designated prices.

He said the commerce ministry has noticed that the prices of these products increased exorbitantly, taking the advantages of global instability and the record hike of dollar price – that is unfair. In fact, stability in markets was not earned through ensuring fair prices of products.

"In the meeting, it was decided that from now on, the government will fix the prices of these products. Bangladesh Trade and Tariff Commission has given the responsibility [to do that]," the minister added.
