The outbreak of Coronavirus has totally shut everyone down. The lockdown has already extended here. The overall economy has crashed. This pandemic has caused the shortage of numerous stuff. LPG, one of the most essential household needs, face masks, hand sanitizers are getting very hard to find. Only half an LPG cylinder is being sold now. This just brings back the nightmare of the border lockdown by neighboring nations. Even in such a situation, the greed of the people does not seem to fade away. There’s the black market that’s even making this situation even worse. Face masks, hand sanitizers are sold at high prices. In response to this, the government has taken serious action. Now, you can file a complaint on an online portal, issued by Consumer Rights Management System under the request of the honorable Prime Minister.
