IPOH: There are no shortages of vegetables and fruits in the state, says Datuk Seri Saarani Mohamad.

The Perak Mentri Besar said there were ample supplies of agricultural produce that would be sufficient for the month of Ramadan as well as the upcoming Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebration.

"Watermelon, chillies and leafy vegetables that are mostly sought after during Ramadan have increased in the first quarter of the year.

"Looking at the current trend of the production of vegetables and fruits, the supplies in the state are sufficient to cater to the needs of the people during Ramadan and also Hari Raya Aidilfitri," he said after opening the Riang Ria Raya agro-based industry products promotion and sales programme at the Seri Perak Darul Ridzuan building premises here on Thursday (April 13).

On the increase in prices of vegetables, Saarani said it was due to their shipment to other states, including Johor, which was affected by the recent floods.

"It is also due to supply and demand," he said.
