The Food Ministry will purchase 10 million jute hessian bags from Bangladesh Jute Mills Corporation (BJMC) as a Cabinet body has approved a proposal to this end.

At a meeting, the Cabinet Committee on Public Purchase with Finance Minister AHM Mustafa Kamal in the chair also approved a number of procurement proposals of different ministries.

As per the Food Ministry's proposal, the Food Department will have to pay Tk54 crore for procuring 10 million jute hessian bags, reports UNB.

Briefing reporters after the meeting, the finance minister said although some workers and employees of the state-owned jute mills are on a movement for arrears, it will be possible to supply the bags as per the requirement as still 44,000 workers are working at different mills getting regular salaries.
