Stern action against rice procurement irregularities: Qamrul
Food minister Qamrul Islam has warned those involved in the government rice procurement process saying that stern actions will be taken against those involved in any irregularities.

Qamrul said this on Monday while he was speaking at a press briefing at Khadya Bhaban.

Issuing the warning, the minister said legal action will be taken against the government officials if they are found involved in irregularities at the field level during the rice and paddy procurement.

“Agriculture Ministry will provide a list of farmers from whom the authority will procure rice and paddy in a systematic process”, said Qamrul.

“The government will clear payments through account pay cheques to the farmers”, he added.

The minister also said that necessary steps will be taken so that middlemen cannot discourage the farmers during the procurement.

The government is expected to procure 7 lakh mts of paddy at TK. 23 per kg while 6 lakh mts of rice at TK. 32 per kg from May 5 to August 31 this year.
