100g of soybean oil at Tk 20 for the poor

The retail price of Soybean oil has gradually soared to Tk 180-190 per litre, making it very difficult for low-income people of Bangladesh. As a result, the Bijoy Sarani Railway Market, located in the capital’s Tejkunipara, is selling 100 gm of oil in polythene bags at Tk 18-20. Many waited in line behind the Trading Corporation of Bangladesh, or TCB, trucks for hours to buy some oil at the comparatively cheap price. Photo: Mahmud Zaman Ovi
