Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal has asked officers of the Food and Civil Supplies Department as well as deputy commissioners of the districts to personally inspect markets to check price rise and send him reports along with photographs by Wednesday.
Expressing concern over rising prices, Sonowal particularly issued a direction to the deputy commissioners to carry out compulsory market inspection in their respective districts and submit their reports with photograph directly to the chief minister’s office by June 29.

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.
