The government in Bangladesh is planning to check the increase in production of leaf tobacco in the country, according to a story in The Financial Express quoting a UNB News Agency report.
“A policy will be formulated soon to check the cultivation and production of tobacco,” M. Amin Ul Ahsan, coordinator of the tobacco control cell of the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, was quoted as telling the news agency.
But despite his use of the word soon, he seemed to suggest that it might take some time to devise a policy acceptable to all. Many ministries and government bodies had interests in tobacco cultivation and production, he added.
