Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal has held a meeting with office bearers of several cement companies at the conference room of his office in Assam Secretariat and sought reasons for the inordinate price rise in the commodity.
Sonowal said, “The rise in price of cement impacts the common man. The state government is committed to bring about stability in prices of all commodities”.
Maintaining that rise in cement price has affected the market, Sonowal asked cement manufacturing companies to take concrete steps to rein in prices. The Chief Minister said, “If the price of cement is inordinately high in Assam in comparison to other states, there will be repercussions here.”
