“Corruption of officials won’t be tolerated anyway,” he said while speaking at a reception programme organized by Bangladesh Dairy Farmers Association at the Zilla Parishad Auditorium here today.

“Knowing their problems, I will set priorities and take initiatives to solve the problems… We will go closer to the farmers, hold yard meetings to get fruitful results from the farmers,” he added.

Referring to the advance planning to increase production, the minister also said the food price suddenly increased in the market due to stock shortage and the price cannot be controlled by importing.
