The government on Tuesday urged all not to get confused with misleading information over salt stock and price being spread by an unscrupulous group saying the current salt reserve is much more than the country needs.

“There’s no shortage of salt. At present, the salt stock in the country is much higher than the demand,” said Chairman of Bangladesh Small & Cottage Industries Corporation (BSCIC) Md Mostaque Hassan.

He said an unholy syndicate is trying to reap benefits by spreading misleading information through online media.

“The people of the country are requested not to get confused.”

The BSCIC chairman said the salt stock in the country was 6.50 lakh metric tonnes on November 15 and the country saw record salt production in 2018-2019 fiscal year – 12.24 lakh metric tonnes - which was much higher than the target.

He said the government attained self-sufficiency in salt production due to hard work of the salt farmers and government’s policy support.

A control room has been opened at the BSCIC headquarters (Phone No: 02-9573505) for salt-related all information.
