MoCI should stay alert against greedy traders in Ramadan: MP

Posted on : Monday 21st of May 2018

KUWAIT CITY : Several lawmakers have put the Ministry of Commerce and Industry under microscopic surveillance since the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan, with special focus on greedy traders who exploit festive periods and other related occasions to hike prices disregarding the negative effects of their actions on the living standard of low income earners, reports Al-Rai daily.

In this context, MP Abdullah Fuhad affirmed that some traders made a decision to exploit the holy month repeatedly each year due to nonchalance on the part of the Ministry of Commerce and Industry. He urged the Minister of Commerce and Industry Khalid Al-Roudhan to protect the interests of citizens and their needs in the holy month of Ramadan, which some traders capitalize to exploit Kuwaiti and expatriate consumers. He asked the minister questions concerning the steps taken by the ministry to curb cheating and price hike during Ramadan. He stressed the spate of exploitation continues without any surveillance by the ministry, saying he will be waiting for response from the minister. He reaffirmed that the issue will be a part of the parliamentary priorities later.

In his comment, MP Khalaf Dumaither said the Ministry of Commerce and Industry in Ramadan should stay alert against traders who are fond of exploiting people’s needs. He indicated the ministry should stand firm with all its agencies, chief among them the National Consumer Protection Committee. He urged the ministry to face its responsibilities squarely; stressing the issue will continue the same way unless the traders are stopped from undue exploitation in Ramadan.
