New Delhi, April 10 (IANS) Urging people not to resort to panic buying, the Retailers Association of India (RAI) has said that there is adequate stock of essential food products including grains and pulses.

In a statement, the industry body has said that it is working with state governments to assure the availability of essential products.

"There is enough stock of grains, pulses and other daily essentials for the lockdown period and beyond. There is no need for citizens to believe otherwise and engage in panic buying," it said.

The entire government machinery at the central, state and local levels has been working relentlessly along with RAI and other stakeholders to ensure a smooth supply of essentials, it said.

RAI, along with its members, is working closely with various state governments and with the Centre to resolve supply concerns with regards to essentials as they arise at the earliest, said the retailers' body.

"All stakeholders are working at war footing with the sole intent of ensuring citizens are safe and comfortable and do not face any hardships for accessing daily essentials," it said.
