Nasim directed the country’s mobile courts and sanitary inspectors to work more sincerely. He said people’s representatives at Upazila levels will be involved in anti-adulteration campaign. The public representatives will be given responsibility to monitor the work of sanitary inspectors in village markets, he said. Nasim underscored the need for more dynamism of mobile courts in the cities, including the capital. He said technology-based management will be put in place to ensure food safety.
