Dhaka: Seven days ago, the price of broiler chicken eggs increased and still has not decreased. Red eggs are being sold at 48 taka in neighborhood shops.
Buyers have to pay 12 rupees for an egg.
Buyers say that the price of eggs which increased 7 days ago is still not decreasing. I hear it may increase. If this continues, people will starve to death.
On Thursday (September 22) from afternoon to night, a visit to the capital’s Pallabi and Kalshi bazaars can be seen.
It is known that a dozen red eggs are currently being sold at Tk 145 in the market. Price of red eggs is 48 taka. A dozen of duck eggs is 210 taka, currently selling at 70 taka. Besides, a dozen of domestic chicken eggs are being sold at 210 taka and a single one is being sold at 70 taka.
Rajiya Sultana, a resident of Kalshi area, said that the price of eggs has increased and is not decreasing. Also, the prices of many products have increased in the market. Almost everything is going beyond the purchasing power of the common man. If this continues, what will people eat? People must die without food.
Residents of rural areas. Manik was angry with the increase in the price of eggs and told BanglaNews that the price of everything is now beyond the purchasing power of people. People have now reduced their purchase of eggs. In such a situation, many poor people have stopped eating eggs. Does the government not keep track of the market?
Abu Bakkar Siddique Pintu Patwari, the owner of Patwari General Store in Pallabi area, said that the price of eggs which increased 7 days ago has not decreased yet. I am selling red eggs for 48 rupees. I am selling a dozen for 145 rupees. The price of eggs is likely to increase.
He also said that wholesalers and poultry farm owners are enjoying the increased profit of egg prices. A month ago, when the price of eggs went up, they made a lot of profit. Billions of rupees have been stolen from the market. The wholesalers and poultry farm owners are benefiting from the increased price of eggs being sold. They have earned what they earned in the last seven days. Even if the government gives any kind of campaign, there will be no benefit to the common people. Which the money taking traders have taken from the market.
Ramzan Ali, an egg seller at Kalshi Bazaar, told BanglaNews that he is selling red eggs at 45 taka. I am selling a dozen for 145 rupees. Wholesalers and poultry farm owners are increasing the price of eggs on this occasion. The excuse this time is that the price of chicken feed is high and the price is increasing. Before this, the price of eggs was increased on the pretext of running generators due to transport costs and lack of electricity. The price of eggs may increase by 1 to 2 rupees from Friday.
