Food and Consumers Affairs Minister Ram Vilas Paswan today said that the government has a large stock of pulses and oilseeds.
Mr Paswan also said, the government is monitoring the rise in prices of pulses and oils during the last few days.
In a series of tweet, Mr Paswan said, the main reason behind this is the creation of an environment of artificial boom in pulses and oils by the hoarders. He said, the government will take immediate action against hoarders.
The Minister further said, his Ministry has written a letter to Agriculture Ministry to immediately sell the pulses and oilseeds purchased through NAFED, especially the mustard and gram in the market, so that the consumers can get pulses and oil at a reasonable price
