There are some viable progresses have been made by Bangladesh in the socio-economic sectors during the past few decades. But the profits of those progresses are unequally distributed over the countryside. The inequality in income has risen during the past few years. The expenditure and consumption of the countrymen has increased at higher rate than that of the income. This has an adverse effect on the fulfillment of the basic rights of the country′s population. It is the constitutional obligation of the state to ensure fundamental rights of population. It is believed that this study will helpful for the policy makers in identifying the main causes of rise in the price of essential commodities in design effective programs in the concerning matter. Results of this study will facilitate policy-makers and respected authorities in taking proper and practical steps and developing feasible strategies to address the issue of fundamental rights of people in Bangladesh.
