Shorting prices of onion, which is ubiquitous in Indian cooking, has been a major concern. It is widely seen as the poor people’s vegetable.
The price-rise in last few weeks has brought about grievances in kitchens of the most householders, as the price is quite high for them to afford. People need it daily not only for cooking but also for preparing Salads, Poha, Burji etc.
Its prices shooting up to Rs 100 a kilo in different markets of the country is bringing tears to common man’s eyes much before cutting them. The government must solve this problem in the best possible way and the hoarders, promoters and black-marketers should be dealt severely.
