Metrotvnews.com, Surakarta: Minister of Agriculture Amran Sulaiman ensures the distribution of food supplies to fulfill the needs of fasting month up to Eid al-Fitr will be smooth without any obstacles.

Previously, the Ministry of Transportation had asked all large quantity vehicles not to pass the roads for holiday travelers several days prior and after Eid al-Fitr, as it may disrupt the flow of traffic.

"We have coordinated with the transportation (ministry) as it may be the first priority for food to keep the supplies going, as preventing price anomalies," Amran revealed after visiting Legi Market, Letjen S Parman, Banjarsari, Surakarta, Thursday (6/11/2015).

Moreover he confessed that he had asked the ministry to provide ways for vehicles carrying the basic needs for the people in supplying stocks during the fasting month to Eid al-Fitr. This is especially to main needs such as rice, chili, shallots and meat.

"Don't let food distribution queue. Especially rice, meat, chili, shallots, both in the ports or roads. We have coordinated to accelerate it. I ensure food distribution must be able to pass toll highways," Amran affirmed.

As known, the price of basic needs continues to increase as it enters fasting month and Eid al-Fitr. It is due to the increasing demands over basic needs as aligned with the needs during fasting and Eid al-Fitr.

Unfortunately, the supply distribution is halted since vehicles carrying food supplies are banned from crossing the main roads for holiday travelers. It is exactly what Amran had worked on to be coordinated with the related technical ministries to ensure the sufficiency of supply within fasting month and Eid al-Fitr. (Eps)
