Sonowal, whose government completed its first month in office on Friday, took stock of the situation arising out of price rise in the past few weeks, and asked officers to find out exact reasons behind price rise and initiative remedial measures. “Once we get reports from the districts we can actually ascertain the actual cause of price rise and we will be able to arrest the problem,” Sonowal said.

The chief minister also directed officers of the Food, Civil Supplies and Consumer Affairs department to undertake inspections at the level of whole-sellers and retailers and asked them to address the mismatch of wholesale price and that of retail.

He also asked officers to take a look at the buffer stock of food items and asked them to provide him a clear picture of how food items were being disbursed at the fair price shops in the rural areas.
