Unbridled Price Hike
The abnormal surge in commodity prices has made public life unbearable. The price of necessary goods exceed beyond the ability of the people whether poor or middle class. Both lower and middle class people especially with fixed incomes are gradually losing their ability of purchasing foods that may ultimately results in malnutrition and hunger among the masses. The rapid rise in commodity prices has posed a serious threat to food security also in Bangladesh. The standard of living is severely hampered by this intensive price increase. Finding no ways consumers  are being compelled to spend from their savings which would  put them in trouble in the long run.
The abnormal increase in commodity price must be stopped as soon as possible. We hope quick and immediate intervention of the government for a viable solution to prevent price hike.
