Ensuring nutritious food biggest challenge now

Agriculture Minister Abdur Razzaque today said the big challenge for the country right now is to ensure nutritious food for all.

“There is no food crisis in the country even during the pandemic as we are self-sufficient in food grain production now,” he said.

The minister said this while addressing a meeting virtually to review the progress of the implementation of the Annual Development Program (ADP) from the Secretariat this morning, read a press release issued by the agriculture ministry today.
