Possible cyclone ‘Asani’: Minister warns traders for hoarding

5/05/2022 at 1:26 PM

Bhubaneswar, May 5: Food supplies minister Ranendra Pratap Swain today warned traders resorting to hoarding and black marketing in view of possible cyclone.

Swain said that steps are being taken to prevent black marketing of commodities. “We have adequate stock of essential commodities and people should not resort to panic buying. Strict action will be taken against traders resorting to hoarding,” said the Minister.

A cyclonic circulation has been formed over South Andaman Sea and neighborhood on May 4. Under its influence, a Low-Pressure Area is likely to form over the same region around May 6. It is very likely to move northwestwards and intensify gradually into a Depression during the subsequent 48 hours.

Earlier on Thursday, the Special Relief Commissioner (SRC) has directed 18 Collectors to take precautionary measures ahead of possible cyclone.
